Palin's Wasilla church to reopen Sunday

Posted: Wednesday, January 28, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Gov. Sarah Palin's home church is set to reopen this weekend after a fire caused considerable damage.

Wasilla Bible Church will reopen Sunday. The church was damaged in an arson fire on Dec. 12. Five people were inside the building at the time of the fire but escaped unharmed.

Damage was estimated at $1 million. Pastor Larry Kroon says insurance will pay for repairs.

The church has received about $100,000 in donations.

Kroon says those will go toward expenses such as installing a new security system.
