Arrest made in U.S. church arson, church plans to rebuild

JEFF TURNER

The pastor of Victory Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California says an arrest has been made in connection to a fire that destroyed the church’s main building. But Pastor Edward Jenkins also said the church is not going anywhere and they will rebuild.

Last week a fire at the church left the church’s nearly 80-year-old building in ruin. Since then, items that could be saved have been pulled from the ashes including a pulpit and piano.

Authorities in Los Angeles have not released the suspect’s name or announced a motive behind the fire.
