The fire that devastated the Fincastle Church of God on Sunday morning has been deemed arson.

On Thursday, morning Sheriff Robbie Goins said a joint investigation between the Campbell County's Sheriff's Department and the Tennessee Bomb and Arson Squad has determined the fire was intentionally set. The particulars of the fire are not being released other than it was the act of an arsonist.

"We will be working with them to find who did this and make an arrest," said Goins. "We are asking anyone who thinks they have information to call us. They can remain anonymous."

Anyone with information can call 562-7446.
