Concern Looms Amid Two Church Fires in Augusta County

| October 12, 2011

After two church fires, one of which was caused by arson, occurred in Augusta County, area pastors say they are concerned that their church could be the next one affected.

A fire Saturday night at the Hildebrand Mennonite Church was ruled to be caused by arson on Monday.

The cause of the second fire, which occurred ten days ago at the Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church in Crimora, is still under investigation.

Pastor Will Heyward with the Smyrna Presbyterian Church says he is worried his church could be the next target.

“Well it's disturbing, you hate to hear about anyone having to go through that kind of tragedy and when it's local it just brings it home," said Heyward.

Heyward's church is only a few miles away from the two affected churches.
