UPDATE: A MELBOURNE bishop believes the third suspicious church fire in as many days is not linked to clergy sexual abuse.
Fire crews and police are investigating a fire at St Mary’s Catholic Church in Foster St, Dandenong, that started about 2.30am.
The fire, which caused $250,000 damage, was started in the church’s storeroom. Another was sparked near the altar.
A team of about 40 firefighters took about an hour to control the blaze.
It comes after fires on Monday at St James in Brighton and St Mary’s in St Kilda East – two parishes home to notorious paedophile priest, Ron Pickering.
