Authorities have announced the arrest in an arson fire that damaged a southeastern Ohio church whose minister said he believed the church was targeted because of the congregation’s support of gays and lesbians. The State Fire Marshal’s Office said Tuesday that Donald Williams made statements incriminating himself in the Aug. 17 fire at South Bloomingville Christian Church. The 36-year-old Williams has been housed on a probation violation since Aug. 21 at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville where records don’t list an attorney for him.
