COLEMAN (AP) - Authorities believe a fire at a church in Oconto County of northeastern Wisconsin last month was set intentionally.
The Brazeau Fire Department responded to the Klondike Community Church just outside of Coleman in the late hours of Monday, March 19.
The worship area of the church was significantly damaged, although an estimate on the cost is still not available. No one was inside the church at the time, and no one was hurt.
WBAY-TV reports the initial investigation by local, state, and federal agencies determined the fire was not accidental.
The Oconto County Sheriff's Department asking the public for any information about the fire. Authorities say that shortly before the fire was noticed, a small, dark-colored car was seen in the parking lot.
