Southern Indiana church vandalized and set on fire

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Windows were broken and fires were set at a southern Indiana church, and the pastor is calling it an act of pure "meanness."

A maintenance worker at the Ohio Chapel United Methodist Church near Columbus, Indiana, spotted the damage and called police Saturday. Fortunately, none of the fires, that were set in the sanctuary and basement, spread.

The church has only about 20 members.

The Bartholomew County sheriff is investigating and said he's looking at a possible connection to damage at another nearby church.
