Officials: Arrest Made After Fire at Vegas Church

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Fire officials say a person has been arrested after an overnight blaze damaged the entrance to a Las Vegas-area Baptist church.

Deputy Clark County Fire Chief Erik Newman said investigators think the man taken into custody early Friday had a dispute with someone at Nellis Baptist Church before the fire was discovered about 3 a.m.

Police arrested Adrian Kincaid, 35, on charges of first degree arson and burglary.

No injuries were reported.

Newman says county and North Las Vegas firefighters quickly doused flames outside double doors of the structure at 4300 Las Vegas Boulevard North.

But officials say flames and smoke caused about $100,000 damage. An earlier estimate had the damage at $40,000.

Newman says county fire investigators and federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents are still at the scene.
