PHOENIX (AP) -- Authorities say a juvenile is in custody in connection with an arson fire at a Phoenix grocery store.

Phoenix Fire Department officials announced the arrest Tuesday night, but didn't identify the boy or his age.

Firefighters say they found multiple ignition points when they responded to a fire inside a midtown Fry's store Monday evening.

Sprinklers contained the fire until firefighters put it out.

A specialized ventilation truck was used to remove the smoke from the building. No injuries were reported.

Phoenix Fire officials originally said they were searching for three people suspected of being responsible for the arson blaze.
