Teen charged with burning dog


Florence police say they've charged a 14-year-old boy with Arson 3rd degree and Animal Cruelty.


His name isn't being released because he is a juvenile.




Last Saturday, officers say he poured lighter fluid on a dog near Iola Jones Park in Florence.


Witnesses say they saw five or six teenagers standing around and laughing as the dog was burning.


The five month old husky/chow named Princess by her owner died from the injuries two days later.
