BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - We now know the fire that destroyed a Boca Raton charity was the work of an arsonist.

Two weeks ago, a blaze ripped through the Boca Helping Hands organization in East Boca.

Nearly everything in the charity's assistance center including its job center was completely destroyed. Right now, investigators are combing the East Boca area looking for several persons of interest.

Meanwhile, Boca helping hands is just trying to get back on their feet. They will re-open down the street from their assistance center on September 10.

They hope to have a permanent location by the end of the year.
