Pennsylvania police suspect a 16-year-old boy to be the cause of fires that caused significant damage to a Christian summer camp’s buildings Saturday.

The fires caused about $200,000 worth of damage to the Christian camp’s ranch, destroying three buildings and a shed, according to NBC News.

No people were hurt by the fires, which were reported around 3 a.m. at the Miracle Mountain Ranch in Spring Creek Township.

The teenage boy reportedly set fire to hay in each of the three buildings that are now destroyed.

The Christian summer camp is a non-denominational, non-profit organization that offers summer camps and retreat and ministry programs, according to the Miracle Mountain Ranch website.

No programs at the ranch have been canceled.
