News from Utah

Charges have been filed in connection with the 2006 arson fire of a historic LDS church in Springville that forced crews to demolish the meeting house.

On July 28, 2006, crews responded to a fire at the LDS meeting house, 451 South Main Street. The church was built in 1913.

In 1998 it was remodeled at a cost $1.5 million and later rededicated by LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley.

The fire caused approximately $200,000 damage and crews were forced to tear it down rather than rebuild.
