The fire that damaged the Temple of Refuge Church of the Living God on Tuesday morning in northeast Charlotte was intentionally set, authorities say. The blaze started in the church sanctuary and caused an estimated $25,000 to $50,000 damage, according to investigators. Church members are looking for a place to hold worship services this weekend.
