Fire breaks out at Memphis church

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A fire broke out at a Memphis church Monday morning, causing at least $140,000 in damage.

Firefighters rushed to Perfecting Love Community Church around 11 a.m.

The flames engulfed a portion of the building, away from the main sanctuary. Firefighters said the fire damaged church offices, the kitchen, and fellowship hall.

"The fire quickly advanced to the roof and to the attic area," MFD Lt. Wayne Cooke said. "It vented itself through the roof; because of the safety and stability of the church, we pulled our firefighters out."

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. No one was inside at the time, so no injuries are reported.
