Authorities are reportedly treating a fire which occurred at the Pointe Michel church building on Friday evening, as a case of suspected Arson.
Reports indicate that the fire broke out at about 8:30 pm. The fire department in Roseau responded and went to the scene of the blaze.
Several pews inside the church were reportedly damaged or destroyed.
At this time, it is not certain as to the origin of the fire.
However, Parish priest Fr. Peter Wamutitu reported that several weeks ago, a Dominican flag which was at the front of the church, was stolen.
