In national news, an attempted arson at an east Alabama church on Sunday bears little similarity to 10 other intentionally set church fires in the state, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said.
It appeared something was thrown Sunday morning at a Church of God in an effort to set it alight, said the ATF's Jim Cavanaugh. The church is in a remote location near the Etowah County community of Glencoe.
The other 10 arsons and attempted arsons have all been in the central or western parts of the state.
In addition, Cavanaugh said there were no signs of forced entry into the Glencoe church -- a departure from the other arsons.
The previous Alabama church arsons have been at Baptist churches, five with predominantly black congregations and five with mainly white members
That’s all for national and international news. Back to you guys.
