The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office arrested two people accused of starting a structure fire at 633 Myers Road near Highway 176 Tuesday night. 

Investigators say 32 year-old Jessie James Jennings and 26 year-old Lea Renae Miller started the fire. According to the Berkeley County Sheriff's press release, the duo matched the description of two people seen leaving the scene of the fire. Both suspects were taken into custody at a bingo parlor on College Park Road about a half-hour later. 

Jennings and Miller are being held at the local jail, charged with trespassing, negligently allowing a fire to damage land or property of another and public disorderly conduct. 

Both are awaiting a bond hearing.
