Fire set at Spokane Mormon church

SPOKANE — The Spokane Fire Department says a fire at a Mormon church was arson.

Assistant Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer said an accelerant of some sort was used to set fire Tuesday afternoon to a sign on the back of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on the city’s north side.

Firefighters put out the flames before they reached the roof.

One church member, Ron Anderson, told The Spokesman-Review that the brick building has been the target of vandalism in the past, including broken windows and graffiti.
