A criminal investigation has been launched into the St. George, Utah fire that burned down a new Mormon church, which was under construction.
St. George Police stated: “The cause of the fire has not been determined. It is being treated as a criminal investigation due to burn patterns suggesting the fire originated from the exterior of the building.”
Utah resident Michelle Took stated: “Whether you believe this faith or not, it doesn’t matter. This is sacred ground. This is the Mormon’s place of worship, and to see the devastation, it just breaks my heart. It’s gut-wrenching.”
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints promoted information Monday that suggests the national church leadership believes this fire was set on purpose.
Video of the new stake center burning. Shortly after this video did the tilting steeple come down. It was truly a sad moment to see it, engulfed in flames and smoke and then fall and disappear into the burning rubble.
