Fire Destroys McCreary County Church

A McCreary County congregation is looking for a new place to worship after fire gutted their church early Friday morning.

The fire at the First Church of Jesus Christ in Wiborg broke out around three o'clock Friday morning. State Police blame the fire on an electrical problem. Some people say they've attended the church for decades.

"I don't know what we're going to do right now. We're all saddened. We don't know what we're thinking, either," said church member Violet Boyatt.

The minister says someone did try to burn down the church about three months ago and some initially thought an arsonist was to blame for Friday morning's fire.
