A cell phone video reportedly captured three Michigan teenagers laughing while setting a fire in an empty warehouse.

A cell phone video reportedly captured three Michigan teenagers laughing while setting a fire in an empty warehouse.

The 14-year-old boys, who are ninth graders at Waterford Kettering High School in Waterford, left school and broke into the vacant Stock Building Supply of North Carolina on Jan. 18, police said.

Using an iPhone, the boys began shooting video as they set fire to paper towels while laughing and choking on black smoke, MyFoxDetroit.com reports.

Once the fire was raging, the boys fled the building before an alarm alerted fire and police officials.

One of the boys then realized he left his cell phone inside the building and returned to retrieve it -- while capturing more video footage.

"It appears they may have had intentions to put this out on some sort of media form," Waterford Police Sergeant Scott Good told MyFoxDetroit.com. "Our speculation is probably YouTube or a similar fashion."
