Arson attempt at marines recruiting station -- State College, PA

State College police said it appears someone tried to set a rear door on fire at 242 S. Fraser St., which houses the Marine Corps Recruiting Center in State College.

The incident, which occurred sometime Wednesday night or Thursday morning, was reported early Thursday. Police said the door was charred, but failed to catch fire and the damage was minimal.

The incident comes as police are investigating what they say are an unusual number of nuisance fires in recent months, including a fire Sunday morning that destroyed a police car parked behind the State College Municipal Building on Allen Street.
