Chandler police and the fire department are investigating an early-morning arson set at a Lutheran church Sunday.

The call came in at 6:35 a.m., and according to Jason White, Chandler fire spokesman, a member of the Epiphany Lutheran Church, 800 W. Ray Road, arrived to find the building filled with smoke.

When firefighters arrived there were little or no flames and after venting the building were able to see that a fire had been set in the sanctuary.

“It was obvious it was intentionally set,” White said.
