Owners charged with arson in bagel shop fire

Two brothers accused of torching their Huntington bagel store were arraigned on arson charges Monday.

Robert and Natan Khaimov, of Queens, were arrested Friday for the Sept. 9 fire at Uber Café.

Volunteer Huntington Manor firefighter Richard Holst collapsed and died at the scene while watching colleagues extinguish the fire. Authorities say he died of natural causes.

The men pleaded not guilty and are being held on $250,000 bail. They are due back in court Wednesday.
