It is believed the fire started in the rooftop HVAC system, where most of the damage was contained, Ferguson noted.
“We did have to cut a hole in the roof, but other than that we saved the church,” he said.
There was no one in the church at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.
Investigators made their way to the local church Tuesday morning to further access the scene.
