SANFORD — The three boys charged with Class A felony arson  in connection with the fire that gutted the rear portion of the vacant Stenton Trust mill on River Street denied the charges at a hearing at Biddeford District Court this morning,  

Court documents on file at Springvale District Court show that Judge Deborah Cashman ordered the trio —  a 12-year-old, and two 13-year-olds, all of Sanford, held at Long Creek Youth Development Center in South Portland while awaiting their next court appearance, set for July 27 at Biddeford District Court.

The Journal Tribune has chosen not to name the boys because they are juveniles.
