The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in an arson that caused substantial damage to a Rhode Island church building. Here is video of the damage.
The fire was intentionally set in December at the New Life Worship Center in Smithfield, RI. According to a report from WPRI Television, surveillance video captured a blue SUV driving onto church property before sunrise Dec. 18 when the fire was set. A file story from WLNE says no one was in the building when the fire started.
Investigators have not determined a motive behind the criminal act.
