EULESS (CBSDFW.COM) — Investigators are working to determine if lightning started a fire at First United Methodist in Euless early Monday morning.

The fire started in the attic over the sanctuary just after 1 a.m.

As far as pastor Steve Heyduck knows, this is a first for a church with a very long history.

“I haven’t heard any stories. We’ve been here for nearly 140 years, and there have been no lightning strikes before.”
