Palin’s home church arson fire remains under investigation

Federal investigators in Alaska are awaiting results of laboratory tests to determine what kind of accelerant was used in a fire that heavily damaged Governor Palin’s home church. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says the accelerant was poured at several locations around the exterior of the church, including entrances. Possible accelerants include gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel and even lamp oil. The blaze was set at the main entrance of the Wasilla Bible Church on Friday evening while a small group, including two children, were inside. No one was injured. Palin was not at the church at the time of the fire.
