Two men were charged with burglary and arson after they stole $5,000 from a Dyker Heights home, and then set it ablaze to cover their tracks.

Saleh Musa, 22, and a 15-year-old accomplice were said to be behind the 3 a.m. fire early Thursday morning.  FDNY fire marshals investigated the Bay Ridge and 12th Avenues blaze and found it suspicious.

No word on how the suspects were apprehended.

The duo was charged with arson, burglary and reckless endangerment. They may be charged with assault because a firefighter was injured fighting the fire, according to the New York Daily News.
