3 Arrested for East Alabama Church Fires

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Three Auburn residents have been charged
with a series of church fires that occurred in Lee and Chambers
counties in east Alabama in February.

State Fire Marshall Ed Paulk said Christopher Michael Ware, Taylor Hensley Jennings and Cody Lauren Jasper were being held Thursday in the Chambers County Jail on three counts each of second-degree arson and third-degree burglary. They are all 20 years old.

The fires occurred Feb. 14. They destroyed Liberty CME Church and Union Hill CME Church in Chambers County and caused minor
damage at Pitts Chapel United Methodist Church in Lee County.

Paulk said the investigation is continuing and there may be more arrests.
