Unrest continues in Ferguson, Missouri, and the surrounding area. Seven fires have been set at predominantly black churches in the area since October 8. The question is whether the fires are connected and the motive in setting them off:
The possibility that the fires — set since Oct. 8 — were motivated by hate is being considered as part of the investigation, St. Louis Fire Capt. Garon Mosby told the Associated Press. “We believe that this fire-setting activity is meant to send a message,” Mosby said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.
The St.Louis Fire Department has set up a reward for any information that would lead to the arrest of those responsible for the fires.
