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.”
The pastor was told to expect some smoke and water damage inside the building.
