A man accused of starting a fire at the Mount View Youth Development Center in Charleston was in court in Bangor Monday.
20-year-old Martin Pike is charged with arson and criminal mischief.
Authorities say he started a fire with pieces of graphite from a pencil, causing $3,000 in damage.
His lawyer says it was a prank gone wrong.
Pike is being held on $3,500 cash bail.
He’s expected back on court in March.
