2 arrested in string of Texas church fires

Two men were charged Sunday with intentionally burning down a church in east Texas and are suspected in a string of other fires, authorities said.
Jason Robert Bourque, 19, and 21-year-old Daniel George McAllister face one count of felony arson for a church fire near Tyler, about 90 miles east of Dallas, according to Fox News.
Bond is set at $10 million apiece and they could face life in prison if convicted, according to The New York Times.
The arrests were triggered by a telephone tip, although the suspects had been watched for several weeks.
