(CNN) -- Authorities have issued sketches of three people sought in connection with the spate of eastern Texas church fires.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives released the drawings Friday at a news conference in Tyler, Texas.

We have a serial arsonist out there," said Robert Champion, special agent in charge of ATF's Dallas, Texas, office. "We need help from the public."

There have been a total of 11 church fires so far this year, 10 of them found to be deliberately set.

Police patrols have been stepped up near churches, and in some cases church members are staying at their churches to protect them or patrolling around the churches themselves.
