Two teenage boys are being charged for setting a trash can on fire at an elementary school in Chula Vista.

Police received a call just before 4 p.m. Saturday of a small fire on the campus of Cook Elementary School in the 800 block of Cuyamaca Avenue.  

San Diego Fire crews quickly put out the fire before it was able to spread to nearby classrooms.  

Police saw the two teenagers running from the school upon arrival on scene.  

They were taken into custody.
