Vandal places burning bible under Christmas tree

CONNECTICUT (CNN) - The search is on in southern Connecticut for a vandal who tried to set a Christmas tree on fire.

Police say the suspect attempted to light up this tree up by setting a burning bible underneath it Monday night.

They say the bible was placed on top of these electrical wires, which are connected to the tree's lights.

Police say they got to the scene before the fire spread to the tree.

Many people around town are outraged by the vandalism.

One local news station reports even though the tree was intact, the fire still managed to do more than a thousand dollars in damage.
