MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- There's more bad news for members of a central Ohio church where authorities believe a man drove a stolen car into the building, set a fire and watched from a nearby playground swing as the facility burned last month.

WBNS-TV reports New Horizons Baptist Church in Marysville lost more when a fire was reported early Monday at a barn that contained items salvaged from the church site.

The state fire marshal's says the barn and its contents were destroyed. The fire has been ruled accidental and started in a wall near an electrical outlet.

Jail records show the 30-year-old Philadelphia man suspected in the January church arson remained in custody early Monday.

No injuries were reported from either fire.
