YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Vandals caused minimal damage to a church hall on Youngstown’s west side over night.

Someone broke a window vent at the Serbian Orthodox Hall on Laird Avenue. They then set fire to a roll of toilet paper and tossed it inside the building.

There was a small burn mark on a work bench.

For the hall, it’s now back to business as usual.

“We don’t even have to call the insurance company because the damage was minimal,” said George Mirich of Serbian Orthodox Hall. “A very little spot on the counter top burnt.”

Despite the incident, Mirich said there will be a fish dinner at the church on Friday from 3:30-7 p.m.
