Arson at Bucks County Dance Studio Leaves Firefighter Hurt

One firefighter suffered an injury while battling a blaze at a Bucks County dance studio Monday morning and investigators believe someone intentionally set the fire.

The blaze broke out around 4:30 a.m. at the Bucks County Dance Center along Street Road in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.

Firefighters arrived to find heavy fire in the back of the building -- which is also attached to a residence, according to Bucks County dispatchers.

A firefighter suffered a minor injury at the scene, said dispatchers. No one else was hurt.

Eventually firefighters got the blaze under control and began to investigate inside the building.

Bensalem Township fire investigators and the ATF determined that fire to be an arson. They asked anyone with information to contact Bensalem Fire Rescue at 215-633-3617 or Bensalem Police at 215-633-3719.

The family-run studio opened 30 years ago, according to its website.
