Two teenage boys who set playground equipment on fire in Glendale must pay $105,639 to recoup the loss.

The boys, ages 13 and 14, were ordered on Feb. 25 to pay the city $105,639 to replace the refurbished playground at Glorietta Park, officials said.

The boys each admitted to one felony count of arson last month and were placed on probation, said Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

The fire was started when the boys, whom authorities have not identified because of their age, stacked a pile of wood chips Aug. 26 near the playground set and used a lighter to set it on fire, police said.
