OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says a reward for information about an arson that heavily damaged a church is being increased 15-fold.

The fire on December 18th damaged the Double Branch Baptist Church in Gilmore.

The ATF is offering a $1,000 reward. Now the church's insurance carrier is adding $15,000 to bring the reward to $16,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the fire.
