FDNY fire marshals have arrested three boys on charges of starting a fire that destroyed a home in Staten Island's historic Richmond Town.

The boys, ages 12, 13 and 15, are charged with arson, criminal mischief, burglary, reckless endangerment and criminal trespass.

Investigators say the suspects broke into the 18th century house Aug. 29th and lit some combustible materials on fire.

Sources say fire marshals were able to track the boys down because they bragged about it on Facebook.

Sources also say that one of the boys is related to an actress on VH1's show 'Mob Wives.'

The boys will be charged as juveniles and released into their parents' custodies.

The fire caused heavy damage at the Kruser-Finley house, which dates back to 1790.

It happened just days before the Richmond County Fair.
