Phenix City church fire: State fire marshal to examine burned building

Phenix City authorities are waiting for the state fire marshal to examine the site of a Sunday night church fire.

The Alabama fire marshal is expected to arrive at the vacant church, 1105 Sixth St. South, sometime this afternoon, said Fire Chief Kristin Kennedy.“He wants to come and just view the building because it was a church,” the chief added.

The old church, which at one point had been condemned, caught fire around 9 p.m. The fire was extinguished by 11 p.m., Kennedy said. No one was hurt.
