ATF: Accelerant Poured Around Palin's church

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Federal investigators say an accelerant
-- possibly gasoline -- was poured around the exterior of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's church before fire heavily damaged the
building.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says the
accelerant was poured at several locations around Wasilla Bible Church. Lab tests will determine the type of substance involved.

The blaze was set Friday night at the main entrance of the church while a small group, including two children, were inside. No one was injured.

Wasilla Deputy Police Chief Greg Wood said authorities had no
immediate suspects or motive.
