\begin{abstract}
We first prove that if $\Omega \subset \rr$ is a union of $n$ intervals and is a spectral set, with a spectrum contained in a lattice, then the spectrum is rational. The method of this proof has some implications on the {\it spectral implies tiling} part of Fuglede's conjecture for three intervals, which we prove under the hypothesis that the spectrum is contained in a lattice. At one step in the proof, we need a symbolic computation using {\it Mathematica} to reduce to the equal interval case. This latter case is then taken care of explicitly. Finally we also prove the converse part, {\it tiling implies spectral} for the three interval case.
