The Eupora Fire Department Chief Richard Love tells WCBI.com that firefighters were sent at 4 a.m. Saturday to the Victory Full Gospel Baptist Church. The church was fully engulfed in flames.
Chief Love tells WCBI the blaze started due to a lighting strike from the wave of storms that swept through Saturday.
Firefighters were on scene for three hours and the church was a total loss. Both Eupora Volunteer Fire Department and Walthall Volunteer Fire Department responded to the call.
No one was injured in the incident, according to the WCBI report.
