The pair, 48-year-old Michael Baker and 33-year-old Kaysea Baker, have both been charged with burning a building and conspiracy to burn a building, Massachusetts State Fire Marshall Peter Ostroskey said in a statement. The former was also charged with alleged breaking and entering and destruction of property.
