Authorities seek cause of chapel fire

Authorities on Monday combed the wreckage of a burned historic chapel on the grounds of the Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria. They hope to determine the cause of the fire in coming days, authorities said.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spent the day at the 19-century Immanuel Chapel, which burned Friday, said Special Agent Mike Campbell of the agency's Washington Field Division. He said the agency is working with Alexandria officials.

The blaze was reported just before 4 p.m. Friday in the 129-year-old building.
