BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) - Three people have been arrested in connection with fires that damaged a southern New Jersey county prosecutor’s office and a law firm’s building.

The Gloucester County prosecutor’s office says two men and a woman are in custody. Felix Lopez, Guillermo Veloz and Zilia Perez are charged with multiple offenses including conspiracy and aggravated arson.

The fire at the Cumberland County prosecutor’s office in Bridgeton was reported early on January 29. A fire was reported several hours earlier at the law office of Helmer, Conley and Kasselman in Vineland.

No one was injured in either fire.

All of the suspects are from Vineland.

Bail was set at $250,000 for Lopez and $75,000 for Veloz. Perez was released on her own recognizance.

It was not immediately known if they had retained lawyers.
