McDonough, GA--  (submitted by Henry County Fire Dept.)

A Henry County church congregation is left wondering just what happened, after arriving for church service yesterday to find the building they worship in totally destroyed by the fury of fire.  Fire units were dispatched to Wolf Creek County Line Baptist Church at 3352 Old Jackson Road at just after 2:30 Sunday morning.  Units arrived on scene to find a heavily involved structure with the threat of immediate roof collapse. Fire was reported by a passerby. 

The two alarm fire kept fire crews busy well into Sunday morning as they worked to put out the fire, check for hot spots and perform overhaul.  The church building was one hundred and thirty eight years old. The congregation is fifty to sixty members strong. “Luckily there were no injuries,” stated Captain Sabrina Puckett.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.  Henry County Fire Department, The State Fire Marshal’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms will be collaboratively conducting the investigation into the cause of the fire.

“On behalf of Henry County Fire Department, our hearts and prayers go out to the congregation of Wolf Creek County Line Baptist Church.” stated Captain Sabrina Puckett.
