Fire destroys Raleigh County church


SOPHIA (WVVA) - Smoke was still rising Monday from the remains of a Raleigh County church that burned to the ground over the weekend.

Seven crews responded to the blaze at Gospel Truth Lighthouse Church on Robert C. Byrd Drive in Sophia early Sunday morning, but were unable to save the building.

The church's congregation is currently working to find a temporary home.

It's unknown at this time how the fire got started.
