Clayton police have charged a 13-year-old with starting a fire last week that destroyed a daycare center that was under construction.

The teen is facing two felonies including breaking and entering and burning a building under construction. Investigators say the teen snuck out of his or her home on the morning of April 5, drove a family car to the construction site and returned home before dawn.

Police have not said how they connected the teen to the crime.
