Charges To Be Filed In Indiana County Post Office Fire

CORAL (KDKA)- Charges are expected to be filed in a fire that burned down an Indiana County post office.

On March 24 around 9:45 p.m., firefighters were called to the Coral Post Office along First Street in Center Township.

The state police fire marshal determined the origin of the fire was a burn barrel and brush near the rear exit of the post office.

The fire marshal says it was intentionally and started in or around the burn barrel and it spread to the post office thanks to some high winds.

A 19-year-old suspect has been identified. Police have not released the suspect's name, but they are believed to be from Graceton.

Charges will be filed in the case.

The investigation is being handled by the Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal unit, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the U.S. Attorney's Office.
