Officials: Fire at SC church was an accident

May 21, 2010 5:41:00 AM - thestate.com
Officials say a fire that destroyed the sanctuary of a church in northern South Carolina was an accident.

Anderson County Fire Chief Billy Gibson told multiple media outlets that an electrical short caused the fire that was reported shortly before 6 a.m. Thursday at Centerville Church of God.

It took firefighters about 45 minutes to put out the fire. No injuries were reported

Fire crews were able to save most of the education wing of the church, but the sanctuary was completely destroyed. Crews were expected to stay at the church through Friday morning, putting out hot spots.

Pastor Terry Collins says he's contacting another church about using their sanctuary.
