Fire Destroys Carl Junction Church

A lightning strike seems to have destroyed a Carl Junction Church. Firefighters responded early this morning to the Carl Junction United Methodist Church to find the building fully engulfed in flames. Fire Chief Bill Dunn tells News Talk KZRG his department got the call at around 4am, and the building is a total loss. Pastor Bill Kenagy says they will still hold church services this Sunday at the Carl Junction Schools' Stark Performing Arts Center Auditorium at 10am. This is the same church destroyed in the tornado that tore through Carl Junction in 2003. You can find photos of the fire here.
