What's left of the historic wooden grandstand at Civic Stadium after it burned Monday. Eugene Police say 4 boys, age 10-12, will be charged for their alleged involvement in the fire.

Eugene Police say four young boys will be charged with crimes related to Monday's destructive fire of Civic Stadium.

Today, Eugene Police Arson Investigators received a tip leading to the identification of the youth, ages 10 to 12, who were allegedly involved in the fire that destroyed the historic wooden grandstand. Police say it was not fireworks related. The boys live in Eugene. Their names will not be released because they are juveniles. Police will hold a press conference Thursday morning to disclose more information about the specific charges against the boys. After Monday's fire, police asked the public for any tips, photos or videos that might help them identify any suspects. Civic Stadium is still a crime scene and the investigation is continuing.
