The March 13 blaze destroyed the nursery at the church of a Brethren group known as Christians Gathered Unto the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, at 8041 132nd Ave. N.E.
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which helped in the arrests, would not release details about the suspects.

Meeting scheduled about new county
A group of people who want to create a new county out of the eastern and southern portions of King County will hold its first public meeting tonight in North Bend.

They say they’re unhappy with several recent actions by King County, including the critical-areas ordinance, alleged financial mismanagement and tent cities for the homeless in suburban areas.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Sallal Grange, 12912 432nd Ave. S.E., in North Bend.
