2 more Catholic churches burned down in B.C.'s Interior


Two more Catholic churches on reserves in British Columbia's southern Interior burned down Saturday morning. 

Lower Similkameen Indian Band Chief Keith Crow says he received a call at about 4 a.m. PT that the Chopaka church was on fire. By time he arrived about 30 minutes later, it had burned to the ground. 

Crow said the fire in his community is still under investigation, adding that the fact it came on the heels of overnight fires that destroyed two other churches in the Okanagan earlier this week is suspicious. 

"There's got to be something more to it," he said. "It's not just coincidence." 

RCMP said they're treating Saturday's fires as suspicious, and investigating any possible links to the Okanagan church fires.
