'Suspicious' fire hits Palin's home church

By Hari Krishnan

New York, Dec 14 (ANI): A "suspicious" fire torn through the church attended by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin on Friday night in her hometown of Wasilla, the church's minister said.

Palin, who was not at the church during the night fire that caused about 1 million dollars damage, later apologized if the blaze was related to her White House run, reports the New York Daily News.

A small group of women and children were in the Wasilla Bible Church doing crafts when the blaze was set at the building's entrance. The group escaped when a fire alarm sounded, Pastor Larry Kroon said.

Palin spokesman Bill McAllister said the governor visited Saturday and "told an assistant pastor that she apologizes if the incident is in any way connected to the undeserved negative attention the church has received since she became a vice presidential candidate on Aug. 29."

The church draws as many as 1,000 worshipers on a Sunday. (ANI)
