Members of Sheriff’s Department, FBI and ATF continue investigating St. John Vianney Church fire

| April 21, 2011

HACIENDA HEIGHTS – A team of investigators 50 strong continued examining evidence Wednesday as part of the ongoing investigation into Saturday's blaze at St. John Vianney Church.

The fire, which broke out shortly after midnight and caused about $8 million in damage to the church sanctuary, was declared an act of arson earlier this week.

Sgt. Gary Morgan of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Arson/Explosive Detail investigators have found clear evidence the fire was intentionally set, but could not provide any specifics.

And so far, there have been few solid leads in the search for a suspect, Morgan said.

He said that while there was no evidence that directly suggested the fire was a hate crime, such a motivation has not been ruled out.
