Arson Listed As Cause of Church Fire

Fire Investigators now say a fire that destroyed a chapel outside Arp Thursday was set deliberately. Investigators say they found a "fire excellerant" inside the church's remains, and believe it was put there on purpose.

The cemetery chapel erupted in blaze early Thursday morning leaving nothing but brick steps and charred chair frames. When firefighters arrived, the roof had already caved in, and the building was destroyed.
