The suspect has been charged as a juvenile with aggravated assault and related offenses following Friday night's incident at Daniel Boone Middle School outside Reading.
Authorities say the suspect made the torch with an aerosol can and a lighter. He shot the flames at a 12-year-old boy in the middle of the crowded dance floor.
Police say the victim's eyelashes and nasal passages were singed. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and released Sunday.
The suspect has been placed on house arrest and suspended from school.
