Fire has destroyed a church and two abandoned houses in Cedar Grove in Kanawha County.
The fire was reported shortly after three Wednesday morning. The New Life Center Church is at the corner of Kelley's Creek Road and Horse Mill Hollow Road.
Firefighers say it appears the two houses were set on fire. The fire then spread to the neighboring church.
Investigators believe say the electric and gas to the two homes were disconnected. The pastor of the church said they were in the process of tearing down the buildings for a parking lot.
The pastor also says services will be held Wednesday night near the church. There are no reports of injuries.
The fire is also shutting down Kelley's Creek Road at least until ten o'clock Wednesday morning.
