A passerby reported the barn fire just after midnight on April 19. When firefighters arrived at the scene on State Rt. 9, they say it was fully involved.

Hudson police say Sackett and four other juveniles were also responsible for setting a fire on North Front Street on January 18.

Over 100 firefighters were called to the scene but the vacant warehouse eventually had to be demolished.

Sackett was also arrested in march for burglary.
