Pennsylvania State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives are investigating the fire at Lebanon Catholic School early Sunday morning that’s believed to be arson.
Lebanon City Fire Department Fire Chief Duane A. Trautman says both agencies came out on Sunday to review the damage and remained until Sunday evening.
Lebanon City Police Chief Todd Breiner says police have identified several juvenile suspects utilizing personal interviews and video released via social media outlets showing a fire being set within the building. The names and ages of the juveniles were not released by police.
The Lebanon City Fire Department shared images of the school around 6 a.m. on Sunday showing flames inside the building. The fire department said “vandalism and arson are now the story of a once proud school family.”
