Topeka, Kansas firefighters responded to calls about a fire at the Westboro Baptist Church compound early Saturday. Church spokeswoman Shirley Phelps-Roper believes the fire was the result of arson and called the act aggressive.
She said, "None of what they do is going to stop us from delivering our message" and pointed out that "there are two elderly people who live here".
Investigators say the fire started near two trash bins near a detached garage, spreading to a fence and the garage. The main houses and none of the contents of the garage were damaged by the fire.
