EMMETT, Idaho (AP) — Authorities in the southwestern Idaho city of Emmett are investigating two church fires that each started at about 4:30 a.m. Saturday. KTVB-TV reports that both fires started about two blocks from downtown Emmett and struck the Community Bible Church and the 1st Baptist Church.

Firefighters were able to get both fires out quickly but the extent of the damage is unknown. Pastor Lance Zagaris of 1st Baptist Church says the fires are a surprise and he doesn't know why they would happen.
