This brings the total number of

But it isn't clear if yesterday's
fire is connected to nine other
churches that have been damaged since

Officials say there's no racial
pattern.

Five of the churches had white
congregations and five black.

Federal investigators say they're
looking for two white men in their
twenties or thirties.
