MANCHESTER - Fire investigators say an overnight blaze that gutted a vacant building at the Sununu Youth Services Center in Manchester was intentionally set.

District Chief Mike Gamache says that a 911 call came in around 2:09 a.m. Sunday reporting a fire at the juvenile detention facility on River Road.

Gamache said the building at the northern most edge of the property hadn't been in use for more than 20 years, but police had been called recently to remove people who had broken in.

Gamache said the fire was still an active scene Sunday morning. He said investigators at the site had ruled out accidental causes and consider the fire to be arson.

There were no injuries.
