Help for Burned Churches

East Texans are stepping up to help the congregations who’ve lost their sanctuaries in a rash of fires. The burned churches in Athens and Tyler have been flooded with calls from people wanting to donate materials and labor to help them rebuild.

In the meantime, other churches are taking extra measures to keep their places of worship secure. Some have formed teams to patrol throughout the night. Others have hired security services.

Law enforcement says the fires appear to be the work of a serial arsonist or group of arsonists.
