The Bristol Township Police have arrested three juveniles in connection to what officials allege was an arson attempt on their own religious school in the local area Monday afternoon.
Ten local fire departments responded to an isolated blaze Monday afternoon at the United American Muslim Association School on Bristol-Emilie Road in Bristol Township.
The fire began around 4:30 p.m. in the second floor closet of what was formerly known as the Immaculate Conception B.V.M. Catholic Church school.
Bristol Township Fire Marshal Kevin Dippolito ruled the fire an arson shortly following the events.The actors lit up a room filled with boxes of paper towels, and the smoke damage spread to all three floors.
The personal details of the three juveniles responsible have not been released, except for the fact they were students at the school. No motivation has been attributed to the blaze, but police have state it is not a hate crime.
