ZACHARY- Arson investigators are still sifting through evidence after a pastor and her sister were accused of setting fire to a Zachary home yesterday.

Bridget Steib and Lucille Brown are charged with arson after Steib's Zachary home went up in flames Monday.

Neighbors tell News 2 the Steib's lived on their street for nearly a decade and never caused any problems.  They say the family lived in a trailer on the property for several years before building the home.

"She always waved," said neighbor Theresa Walls, "We never had any trouble out of them."

Fire investigators say Steib recently increased the insurance on her property, and added several pieces of evidence led them to decide that she and her sister played a hand in starting the fire.

According to Steib's website she's been a pastor for more than ten years, currently at the Ministry of Love church.
