Exclusive: Jason Bourque Speaks Out About Church Fires

| February 14, 2011

TYLER(KYTX) – During the church fire investigation, Jason Bourque never opened up to investigators about how he set the fires, why he did, or what he was thinking. But Sunday from the Smith County Jail, he spent 30 minutes on the phone with CBS 19's Michele Reese to tell us his side of the story. It's the first time he has talked about the fires since his final sentencing.

"I know for a fact the first one at Little Hope Baptist Church, nothing was stacked," he said about how the fire was built. "I remember starting a Christmas tree on fire there. I remember it so well because it was a Christmas tree it was kind of different," Bourque said.

It was the first church Jason Bourque set on fire, and it's the only one he has a clear memory of setting.

The other nine church fires he says are a blur.

"I was kind of in a daze. Doing it almost like robotically with no fore thought to anything."
