AUBURN, Maine (AP) -- Two Lewiston men accused of setting a fire that destroyed or damaged three apartment buildings have been indicted on arson charges.

Thirty-year-old Brian Morin and 23-year-old Bryan Wood were indicted Wednesday by an Androscoggin County grand jury.

The men are charged with starting a May 6 fire that destroyed two vacant buildings and damaged a third. No one was hurt.

It was the third major fire in Lewiston in less than two weeks and had the entire city on edge. About 200 people were left homeless. Two 12-year-old boys are charged with setting the other blazes.

Wood's attorney has said his client suffers from a mild mental disability. Morin's attorney has said his client is not a danger to the public.

Both men remain held on high bail.
