ORIGINAL STORY

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Arson investigators are looking into an intentionally set fire at the New Braunfels Public Library.

It was reported just before 6 A.M. Wednesday when someone noticed that three trash cans in front of the building had been set on fire.

While there wasn’t any damage done to the building itself, this is the this is the second time the library has been targeted by vandals in recent weeks.

Results of the initial investigation don’t point to anything that could connect the incidents but investigators aren’t ruling out that it’s possible.

The fire didn’t have an effect on the library’s operations.
