NASHVILLE (AP) — Fire has destroyed the sanctuary of a Nashville church.
There were no injuries when the blaze broke out Sunday afternoon at Bell Road Church of the Nazarene. A passer-by alerted the pastor, who lives in a house next door to the church building.
Church board member Judith Baker told The Tennessean church members are grateful that no one was hurt and the congregation will determine how to move forward after the fire.
Assistant Fire Chief Charles Shannon said the building was a total loss and there was no immediate indication of any suspicious cause.
