Sanctuary damaged in Gwinnett church fire

The inside of a Gwinnett County church was seriously damaged by a fire Sunday morning, officials said.

Firefighters are credited with discovering the fire in the sanctuary of the Word Aflame Tabernacle church in Grayson, Gwinnett Fire said in a statement. No one was at the church at the time, and no injuries were reported.

Crews were responding to a separate call and noticed the smoke coming from the church as they passed by at about 8:15 a.m., officials said.

They put out the fire, but not before it caused “considerable damage” to the sanctuary.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
