A church in Dallas has been destroyed by a fire. Firefighters battled this blaze early this morning at the New Line Church on Elam Road in the Pleasant Grove section in Southeast Dallas. The fire broke out about 1:30 a.m.
When firefighters arrived they found flames shooting through the roof. Gusty winds fanned the flames and threatened nearby homes. Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading, but the church was destroyed.
"Sad but still joyful! We were all awakened to the news that there was a fire at our Church, our home, our place of worship to our Lord," said the church in a Facebook post. "Our home of 17 years! Although this is an unfortunate situation, we have continued thanks to our Lord and Savior that no lives were lost. We're bent but not broken! We will keep you all informed on any future information in regards to our weekly services! Pray continually! WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS!!!"
An investigation is underway into what caused the blaze.
