BLACKMAN TOWNSHIP -- New information on last month's massive fire at the former Sparton Electronics building in Jackson.

A suspect has been arraigned on arson charges, and police are on the hunt for two more.

Blackman-Leoni Public Safety Department officials tell News 10 18-year-old Cody Caldwell faces two charges (arson and conspiracy to commit arson) in the March 26 blaze that destroyed the abandoned building.

The two additional suspects still on the loose are also teenagers, and police say they are close to nabbing them -- and don't yet want to release their names.

They say a friend or relative of one of the suspects tipped off police, though they wouldn't yet confirm if that individual will receive the $5,000 reward offered in the case.

Police say the teens intentionally started the fire.
