Police also connected the suspects to burglaries at Park City High School and a condo located at 1940 Prospector Ave.

Both suspects were booked on three counts of burglary, one count of aggravated arson and one count of causing a catastrophe.

Police booked the adult suspect into the Summit County Jail and took the juvenile to a detention center.

According to the Park Record, the hotel fire set by the two suspects was reported Wednesday at 12:35 a.m. It burned in a storage room in an underground parking garage before being extinguished by automatic sprinklers.

Authorities estimate the fire caused between $2,000 and $3,000 of damage, none of which was structural.
