Arson Burns Historic Adirondack Church

The Warren County Sheriff's Office and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives say a fire that destroyed the Episcopal church in Pottersville was arson. The church burned last Tuesday, triggering a full-scale investigation. Federal agents have interviewed more than 75 people. They're offering a $5000 reward for information. The fire followed two burglaries and other acts of vandalism in mid-May. On Sunday, Episcopal Bishop Daniel Herzog held a service and a ceremony of healing in Pottersville. The church had a small congregation, with fewer than 20 members. Brian Mann spoke with John Watson, who has served as church warden at the Episcopal church for more than 30 years.  Go to full article
