Authorities suspect a fire on the field where St. Joseph’s Regional High School in Montvale had held its 2021 graduation ceremony hours earlier was set.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Arson Investigations Unit was investigating the fire along with borough police and the Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification, which collected evidence.

Initial details remained sketchy, although unconfirmed reports were that the grandstand caught fire sometime around midnight.

There were no injuries, Montvale Police Chief Joseph Sanfilippo said.

Park Ridge firefighters assisted their Montvale colleagues.
