The Perry County Sheriff’s Office said they’ve identified three suspects involved in a fire at the former Bristol Schoolhouse.

In a press release Sgt. James McCall said that during an investigation of the schoolhouse on Marietta Road the State Fire Marshal and the Sheriff’s investigators were able to rule out all accidental causes and found evidence that indicates the fire was intentionally set.

Witnesses also came forward who provided investigators with information that led to the identification of three suspects.

The schoolhouse was found on fire Saturday May 14, just before midnight.

The investigation is ongoing and more information will be released at a later time.
