Chicago church targeted

Posted by wlpo on November 10, 2013

Investigators say an accelerant sparked a fire that badly damaged a Chicago church a day after bricks were thrown through the glass front doors of the building. Tom Ahern of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives tells the Sun-Times that specially trained sniffer dogs detected accelerant in multiple areas of the church. Saturday morning’s fire blackened the inside of the Outreach Community Church on the city’s Northwest Side and caused extensive damage, but no one was injured.
