TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WNDU) - There are new details on a devastating fire at a cathedral in Tallahassee, Florida, where a man with local ties serves as bishop.

Sadly, officials are investigating the case as arson at the Co-Cathedral of Saint Thomas More.

It happened Wednesday afternoon. Members noticed smoke, and it is believed someone set four chairs on fire, causing heavy damage in the sanctuary.

The bishop there, Bill Wack, was born and raised in South Bend.
