Fire Destroys Church

Authorities investigate a fire that gutted a Burkesville church.

Kentucky State Police say the fire happened just before four o'clock this morning at "The Church Of Our Lord Jesus Christ" on Spencer Street.

The Burkesville Fire Department had the blaze put out by six. But it ignited again later in the morning.

The church is a total loss.

KSP's arson investigator was called to the scene, along with the state fire marshal's office, ATF and FBI.

No foul play is suspected, but the case is still under investigation.

Authorities say the fire could have been the result of an electrical problem.

According to police, the church had approximately forty members.
