BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police say a video posted on YouTube led them to a group of teens who recorded a factory fire one week ago.

Police officials were emailed the link to the video anonymously.

The video was posted by a group of teenagers that regularly hang out at the Rampage Skate Shop on Railroad Avenue. The owner of the shop vouched for all of the teens seen in the video and said they were with him when the fire began.

One of the teens claims to have started the fire on the video but they have all since denied any involvement.

Police say they are waiting for fire officials to wrap up their investigation and determine the cause and origin of the fire. They say if it is determined to be arson, a criminal investigation will be opened.
