Early this morning the dawn light looked so nice I thought I'd brave the elements and go for a walk...I noticed smoke a few blocks toward the center of town but thought it was just the local ethanol plant..this is what I found..

Lisa the wife wanted to know if you have a shot of the church before it burned? I feel so sorry for the church members. That would be quite a shock. I, being the son of a preacher know how a church can be the only comfort and sometimes the only outlet some folks have. Really a tragedy. I hope no one was injured!

Sorry..I don't have a picture of the church before this happened but I may be able to find something on the towns website later.Yes its a real tragedy for the town...it was much more than just a church.. a daycare..group function...meeting rooms...The shame is that it was burnt intentionally..stuff like that normall doesn't happen in small town Manitoba.Luckily it started very early this morning so no one was inside.

That last photo was pretty dramatic. Any idea of what motivated someone to torch a church? Mentally unstable? Revenge?

We've had 7 fires so far in this state and all are attributed to arson. The churches that burned are all very small community churches in rural areas. No one has any Idea why . The FBI has become involved in these and they will find who did it!
