ATF: First Baptist Church of Temple arson NOT connected to East Texas string


by Laura Avila

TEMPLE - The arson that badly damaged First Baptist Church of Temple is not linked to the series of intentional blazes during the past month in East Texas, according to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent Tom Crowley.

He says the agency is keeping its options open, but at this moment, the Temple fire is not connected to East Texas fires.

The Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed Tuesday, that at least eight church fires in the Tyler area were caused by the same arsonist.

The Jan. 19th fire in Temple caused a preliminary estimate of $15 million in damages.
