Union County church burns while man watches from swing

MARYSVILLE, Ohio — A Union County church burned to the ground overnight, and authorities have arrested a man who was found swinging on the church playground’s swing set watching the building burn.

No one was injured in the early-morning fire at New Horizons Baptist Church, but the building is a total loss, said Sheriff Jamie Patton.

Authorities found that a BMW sports car was driven into the north doors of the church at 17939 Paver Barnes Rd. just off Northwest Parkway.

The 30-year-old man who was arrested swinging on the property is not the owner of the car, and the owner has been located and is fine, Patton said. The man has not been charged.
