The costs for rebuilding or repairing the five Bibb County churches hit by arsonists could reach one million dollars.
The total tab at four of the churches will cost some 660 thousand dollars. That's according to church officials. Representatives for Ashby Baptist Church in Brierfield could not be reached for comment. That church was one of three in Bibb County that were destroyed by the fires. It's believed that church could push the total rebuilding cost to the one million dollar mark.
Officials for the other churches say insurance will cover at least some of their rebuilding costs. The Bibb County churches are among 10 struck by arson in rural Alabama in recent weeks.
