Three people have been arrested in connection with fires that damaged a local 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.

Firefighters responded to a burglar alarm at the Fayette Street office around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. When they arrived, crews found flames coming from an office in the two-story brick building, according to Bridgeton Police Capt. Michael Gaimari.

"The fire was contained to an office that was essentially a re-converted exterior enclosed porch on the south end of the building which is also where the point of the origin of the fire was located," Gaimari said.

"The fire department responded quickly and was able to prevent the fire from spreading to the attached main structure, but that office was completely destroyed."

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.
