Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall in University Heights renovated after being targeted by vandals

SAN DIEGO - A local place of worship has been renovated after it was targeted by vandals three times.

Two fires occurred at the Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall in University Heights in December of 2011.

In the third instance, which occurred in January of 2012, intruders cut a hole through a fence and poured gasoline inside the Kingdom Hall but were unable to start a fire.

During the incidents, vandals ripped the letters off the building that spelled "Kingdom Hall" and spray painted 666, the number of the beast, near the entrance.

Now, the building has been completely renovated and is ready for worship.

"When all the permits were approved, we got started and as the invitation pointed out, we had 776 workers over 14 weekends to rebuild and renovate the Kingdom Hall," said elder Ted Dorius.

Police are still looking for whoever is responsible for setting the hall on fire.
