Officials Say Palestine Church Was Intentionally Set

Officials believe a fire that destroyed a nearly 100-year-old church near Palestine was intentionally set.

Anderson county authorities say it's the second church fire this month. So far, no arrests have been made.

The Asberry Chapel Church just east of Palestine burned on Saturday night. The Palestine church of Nazarene sustained heavy damage in a March 1st fire.

Authorities have said accelerants were found at the scene. The churches are both near or on U.S. 84, and are about five miles apart.
