LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 35-year-old man is accused of setting an overnight fire that damaged a building used by two Las Vegas-area church congregations.

Adrian Kincade was booked Friday into the Clark County jail in pending an initial court appearance on arson and burglary charges in the 3 a.m. Friday fire at 4300 Las Vegas Boulevard North.

Officials say the building is used by Nellis Baptist Church and Mission International Roca Eterna.

No injuries were reported. Clark County fire officials have increased the damage estimate to $100,000.

They say the chapel received smoke damage, and it's not immediately clear if it can be used this weekend.

Officials haven't said how the fire started, but Deputy Fire Chief Erik Newman says it appears Kincade had a dispute earlier with someone at the church.
