A number of different blazes have ravaged the south of France and Corsica this week
Two teenagers are in custody on suspicion of arson following wildfires in southeast France.
The boys, both aged 16, are accused of starting a single blaze in the village of Carro on the French Riviera.
Officials say this particular fire devastated 150 hectares (370 acres) of land.
The teenagers will appear before a judge on Friday afternoon with a view to being charged with arson and theft.
If convicted, the minors could face a 15-year jail sentence.
Aix-en-Provence's deputy police prosecutor, Remy Avon, also confirmed that a 41-year-old man has admitted to accidentally starting a different wildfire.
That blaze in Peynier, which was sparked by a metal-cutting device, burned 72 acres of vegetation.
He was also due to appear before a judge on Friday.
Earlier this week, at least 12,000 people were forced to flee campsites and homes as another blaze raged near Bormes-les-Mimosas.
Hundreds of firefighters were sent to tackle that wildfire, which had burned 800 hectares of forest by Wednesday morning.
Wildfires have already consumed swathes of forest in the tourist-packed region, as well as on the island of Corsica.
