Suspicious fire destroys abandoned church in Pine Ridge

PINE RIDGE (AP) -- Investigators say a weekend fire that destroyed an abandoned log cabin church on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is suspicious.

Interior Fire Chief Cliff McClure tells the media that there is no electricity in the building known locally as the Red Church. He says the fire likely was started by someone, either intentionally or by accident.

The church burned to the ground Saturday night.
