Police who are investigating a major wildfire in Israel have detained a 14-year-old boy who admitted smoking a water pipe in the woods near his village, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
The boy said he panicked and ran to school after the fire started. Two other teenagers who had been detained Monday have been released, Rosenfeld said.
The fire, which broke out Thursday, killed at least 41 people and forced the evacuations of about 17,000 people and scorched over 10,000 acres around Haifa, Israel's third largest city, before it was doused.
Most of the 41 victims were cadets in Israel's prison service who arrived Thursday to help evacuate 500 inmates from the Damon prison near Haifa.
The fire had also threatened businesses, tourism and one of Israel's greenest regions, Mount Carmel.
