Pennsylvania police arrested a man in connection with a fire that gutted part of a synagogue under construction on Yom Kippur, but said there is no evidence the blaze was a hate crime. Ira Ted Gibson, 40, acknowledged throwing a lit cigarette on the floor where the fire began, but has not admitted starting the blaze that caused about $1 million in damage to a building at Temple Ohev Sholom in Harrisburg.
