CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Firefighters say a teenager tried to burn down Chattanooga's new Wellness Center.
Nineteen year old Kashmone Marlin is charged with arson.
He's accused of setting fire to insulation and other building materials at the construction site on 11th Street.
The building isn't damaged, but officials say the loss in materials is about $5,000.
Eyewitnesses say they saw Marlin leaving the scene.
He was taken into custody a few hours later.
Holidays mean family gatherings, which can result in hugs and kisses, and of course, some social awkwardness.
