SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The Spokane Fire Department says a fire at a Mormon church was arson.
Assistant Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer says an accelerant of some sort was used to set fire Tuesday afternoon to a sign on the back of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on the city's north side.
Firefighters put out the flames before they reached the roof.
One church member, Ron Anderson, told The Spokesman-Review the brick building has been the target of vandalism in the past, including broken windows and graffiti.
