GARDNERVILLE, NV - Two 15-year-old boys will have to pay 10,000 dollars in restitution for sparking a wildfire that burned about six square miles south of Gardnerville.
The overall cost to fight the Ray-May fire was roughly 2.8 million dollars.
District Judge David Gamble imposed the statutory maximum fine for the parents of the teens, even though they say it was an accident.
Judge Gamble had already sentenced the teens to probation and ordered them to complete 500 hours of fire-related community service.
