A 17-year-old has been charged with attempted murder and arson in a house fire in Woodbridge, Virginia.

Investigators say the fire was deliberately set while five people were inside and are charging the teen with attempted murder, arson and manufacturing an explosive device.

Prince William County Fire and Rescue responded to the blaze in Marbury Lane around 4:30 a.m. early Sunday morning. Authorities say firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze. Four adults safely escaped the home and one juvenile was treated for minor injuries.

The 17-year-old accused of setting the fire is being held at a juvenile detention center.
