(WMC-TV) - Firefighters in Jackson, TN, spent the afternoon battling flames at an old church building.

According to witnesses, the building was no longer being used as a church and was being converted into condominiums when the fire broke out this afternoon.

Jackson police were forced to move people away from the scene at one point because they feared the building might completely collapse, witnesses said.

So far it's unclear what caused the flames.
