BURNET, Texas (AP) - Investigators are trying to determine who left a burning cross outside a Central Texas church.

KXAN-TV (https://bit.ly/18KB5to ) reported Tuesday that the incident involves Smoking for Jesus Ministry in Burnet (BER’-net). That’s about 45 miles northwest of Austin.

The Burnet County Sheriff’s Office says the charred wooden cross was found Sunday night propped up against the church’s sign. Investigators have asked for the public’s help in locating any suspects.

The church, on its website, says “On Fire For The Lord” and that the ministry in December marked its 18th anniversary.

Messages left with the sheriff’s department and the church weren’t immediately returned Tuesday.
