A teenager is charged with starting the massive fire that destroyed two buildings in Cicero last week.

The five-alarm fire began inside a vacant warehouse in the 1800 block of 54th Avenue and spread to a neighboring business.

Authorities say the teen may have started the fire to keep warm,  and then started playing with the fire, causing it to spread.

His name is not being released because he is a juvenile.
