SEMINARY, Miss. (AP) — Authorities in Mississippi are looking into what led someone to burn a cross.

Covington County Sheriff Stann Smith told The Clarion-Ledger that the cross was found late Wednesday afternoon in Seminary. He says it was in an area off Mississippi 535.

Smith confirmed that the FBI is on the scene, but says there isn't a lot he can release because of the ongoing investigation.

Smith says authorities are conducting interviews regarding the situation.
