Two youth arrested for Las Vegas church arson

Two minors have been arrested for a June 2017 church arson that caused over $13 million in damage. An Associated Press story printed in the Herald Courier says the names of the youth involved are not released because of their age.

Church trustee Charlie Blake spoke to KTNV television the morning of the fire in 2017. “Even though it looks like it’s devastating, God will rebuild this church,” Blake said to the TV station.  “Everything happens for a reason,” he said.

No one was injured in the fire that damaged Zion Methodist Church’s building according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.  The paper said an ATF spokesperson is referring all questions about a motive for the fire to county prosecutors.
