Muskogee County Church Meets Following An Arson Fire

An arson fire couldn't stop members of a Muskogee County church from meeting for Sunday services.

Members of the New Hope Baptist Church in Oktaha gathered in a donated tent. The nearly all-black congregation believes the fire is a hate crime and authorities are investigating it as an act of arson.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is running tests to determine if an accelerant was used to start the fire. Results should be released in several days.
