Georgia Church Building destroyed as fire breaks out in worship service

by Alex Collett

A Georgia Church building has been destroyed as a fire broke out in a worship service.

Tragedy struck at the Douglas Christian Fellowship Church of God in Douglas, Georgia on Wednesday night, February 2.

The fire apparently broke out about 15 minutes into the service and a livestream shows the worship leader pointing, when they notice the fire.

Thankfully, all the congregants were safely evacuated from the building, and no injuries have been reported. 

The damage of the fire was extensive, causing the roof over one part of the building to collapse and another part of the building to be leveled entirely.

A later video was then captured by American news channel CBS46 in which you can see huge flames engulfing the church.

Members of the community expressed their condolences and support for the church on Facebook following the fire.

One said: “We are praying for you all! God will restore [it] 100 fold.”

Another said: “Praise God everyone got out safely. Praying for your church family!”
