The Billings Police Department on Thursday said it has identified a juvenile suspect in an incident that led to the fire at the Sports Authority building on Tuesday.
Police Lt. Kevin Iffland said the suspect is a 15-year-old Billings teenager.
No charges have been filed at this time but the investigation is continuing, Iffland said. There appears to be one main suspect, he said, but investigators are still taking statements from witnesses.
A decision on filing charges will be made in about a week to 10 days, Iffland said.
The Sports Authority, at 100 N. 24th St. W., was damaged in a fire that police said was started by fireworks. No one was injured, but the fire caused about $500,000 in damages and the interior of the building had smoke damage.
