 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two Louisville men are facing serious charges after police say they deliberately started a fire in a south Louisville barn.

According to an arrest report, it happened on June 13 in the 10000 block of Plaudit Way. That's where police say Canyon Rains and James Cline - both 18 -- entered the barn at 10214 Plaudit Way and intentionally set fire to a kitchen.

Rains disposed of Cline's boots when he left town for the weekend, according to police. Investigators say Cline was wearing the boots when he kicked in a door to gain entry. According to police, Cline admitted to taking part in the crime and said he wore gloves when starting the fire.

Police say Rains and Cline had been doing work at the barn as part of a work program with the Department of Juvenile Justice.

Both men were arrested on June 25. They're charged with arson, burglary and tampering with physical evidence.
