ODESSA - A young Odessa boy is in big trouble after being charged with arson.

Odessa fire officials say the 13-year-old admitted to setting an abandoned building on fire back in May.

A witness helped lead to the teen's arrest.

The building was formally the Vette's Sports Grill.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, the patio was fully involved.

The teen is currently being held at the Ector County Juvenile Detention Center.
