Duncan Police: Church Fire Not Caused By Arson

DUNCAN, Okla_ Duncan police said the fire that burned down Duncan's Foursquare Gospel Church was not arson.

They said they have wrapped up their investigation and believe the fire was caused by a faulty gas line. The state still has yet to release what its investigators have found.

Police say they believe the fire was caused by a gas line coming from the furnace, and the pilot light set it off. They said they reached their conclusion after studying the fire pattern that was most intense in the area surrounding the gas lines.

The church was destroyed Monday morning, just weeks after its congregation had moved out of the building and put it up for sale.
