ZACHARY - Investigators accused two people, including a pastor from the Ministry of Love church in East Baton Rouge Parish, of intentionally setting fire to a Zachary home this week.

Authorities arrested Bridgett Barnes-Steib in suspicion of arson today, in connection with a fire to the large home on Jacock Road Monday.

State Fire Marshal Butch Browning said investigators also questioned her sister, Lucille Barnes Brown, in connection with the fire. She later surrendered to arson charges.

The fire did $300,000 worth of damage to the home. Investigators said insurance on the property was increased before the fire.
