Fire burned through a small church in Scioto County, Ohio, early Friday morning.

It's the Scioto Furnace United Methodist Church.

The church was destroyed, with just the outer shell left standing.

The pastor, Don Meadows, told NewsChannel 3 that it was arson and police have already made an arrest.

The name of that person hasn't been released.

Pastor Meadows says some money was stolen, but it was recovered.

Members of the congregation are going to meet Saturday to figure out what to do about Sunday services.
