(Worthy News) - Three historic black churches have burned down in a local Louisiana community, and authorities are neither ruling out arson nor that the three fires are related to one another.

“But just as we haven’t connected the three in St. Landry, we haven’t connected the one in Caddo,” said Ashley Rodrigue, a spokeswoman for the Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal, on Friday.

Local authorities in St. Landry Parish have been coordinating with the FBI over the fires, which took place over the last few weeks. State Fire Marshal H. "Butch" Browning declined to get into specific details over the ongoing investigation at a press conference on Thursday, but did not rule out the possibility of arson or that the fires are a part of a larger plan to affect the community.

  1. Let's see, that makes how many black churches destroyed by fire in the last 50 years, that are almost all now, not arson.
