Lightning May Be To Blame In Church Fire

A bolt of lightning may be to blame for a late night fire in Lufkin.

The fire destroyed a steeple at Mount Beulah Baptist Church on Warren Street. Someone driving by the church around 2:00 a.m. Tuesday saw part of the roof on fire and called firefighters.

No one got hurt, but there was a lot of insulation damage.  The church already has plans to buy a new steeple for about $4,000.
