A fire at the Catholic church building on Friday evening in Pointe Michel is being treated as suspected arson by the authorities.
Reports are that the fire broke out at about 8:30 pm.
The fire department in Roseau responded to the blaze.
Several pews inside the church were damaged or destroyed.
It is unknown how the fire began but DNO can confirm that the matter is being treated as arson.
Parish priest Fr. Peter Wamutitu reported that several weeks ago, a Dominican flag, which was at the front of the church, was stolen.
DNO will continue to follow this story.
