Though firefighters were able to put out the flames quickly on Tuesday, damage to the building was significant in comparison to Monday's fire that resulted in only minor damages. 

Witnesses claimed to have seen three people flee the scene on Monday when the first fire began. 

The SPVM’s arson squad will analyze the scene later today to better understand the circumstances surrounding the events. 

No one was injured during the fires and there are no suspects so far.
