Pastor declines to comment on allegations into child abuse at Fireside Chapel

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A 14 News update on an investigation into reported child abuse cases at Fireside Chapel Daycare.

We spoke with the Pastor Gary Auten, who says he has no comment about the allegations. When we asked him if the church planned on making a statement, Auten says they were holding their peace.

Since the end of January, officers have taken at least three reports from parents claiming their children were battered or neglected at Fireside.

All allegations say daycare Director Kimber Auten is responsible. We have reached out to Auten several times, but have not gotten any response.
