Update: Church Fire Caused by Arsonists


Tulsa Police and Fire investigators are looking for a trio of teens. They were last seen running from the closed Bowen Indian Baptist Church yesterday afternoon.

The closed facility was destroyed by a fire yesterday afternoon. Neighbors say the teens were seen running from the church just before smoke started pouring from the building.

This is not the first arson fire at the church. It was heavily damaged in a fire in 2009. In that blaze a 16-year-old was charged with the crime.

The church building was built back in the 1930s and is located at Independence and North Rockford.
