6 fires at St. Louis-area churches under investigation

( KTRS ) Police are hunting for the person who has been setting fire to predominantly black churches in the St. Louis area.

Since Oct. 8, fire has damaged six churches, all within a few miles of each other in north St. Louis city and county. In each case, the front doors were set on fire. Damage has ranged from a few hundred dollars at one church to the near destruction of another.

Five of the churches are predominantly black and one is racially mixed.

The fires add to racial angst in an area still reeling from a police shooting and unrest in Ferguson last year.

Crime Stoppers and the ATF are offering a joint Reward of UP TO $2000.00 for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for the fires.
