RIDGWAY, Pa. -- State police at Ridgway said Friday that a fire at a Ridgway borough maintenance garage was intentionally set and any persons involved may have been seen by several witnesses.

Police said the fire on July 26 started just after 6 p.m. and, due to the time and location of the fire on South Street, it is likely that witnesses may have seen the person or persons responsible for setting the fire.
