Fire destroys church sanctuary in Corsicana

The Associated Press

CORSICANA (AP) - A fire that started early Saturday morning destroyed part of a church built in 1908.

The blaze caused heavy damage to an old brick sanctuary at First Christian Church. Smoke and water damaged a church annex built in 1926.

Corsicana fire Chief Donald McMullan said investigators are on the scene.

"At this point we haven't seen anything that indicates it's suspicious or arson or anything, but we aren't very far in our investigation," McMullan said.

Also investigating are state fire officials and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
