The search continues for the person or persons responsible for at least 10 church fires in Alabama.

To help follow up on more than 400 leads so far, investigators have set up a 24-hour task force office in Tuscaloosa.

Members of the ATF, FBI and other agencies make up the task force and assign tips for investigators to follow.

"At 5:00 p.m., we have a briefing on how everybody did, what they come up with, and what they should be doing next. What's going to happen tonight and tomorrow," said ATF spokesman Tom Crowley, "because this investigation is a 24-hour a day investigation."

The task force is responsible for going over the evidence collected and developing new leads. Federal agents say no arrests have been made.
