LITTLETON, Colo. -- Police are searching for the person responsible for setting fire to the Shiloh House, a non-profit organization that offers assistance to abused children and struggling families.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office tells FOX31 crews were called to the building near West Coal Mine Avenue and South Pierce Street just after 6:30 a.m. Friday.
Investigators are examining evidence that indicates the cause of the fire is "suspicious."
Anna Miller of Shiloh House says the damage will affect 20 employees that help children and their families, "It's very scary it's worrisome and it's sad."
Dionne Waugh of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says anyone with information should come forward, "If anyone saw something any time early this morning or saw anything unusual or suspicious they can give us a call."
Shiloh House was hit by vandals in April 2018 who caused $10,000 damage, stealing outdoor equipment, computers and teachers supplies.
