Photos: A devastating fire burned down a church in West Virgina but not a single Bible was touched by the flames
Firefighters were left stunned by what they saw when they arrived at Freedom Ministries Church in Grandview, West Virginia where a devastating fire was ravaging through the building. The fire so hot that firefighters had to back out at one point.
According to the Coal City Fire Department, as they went through the charred wreckage, they noticed something extraordinary.
"In your mind, everything should be burned, ashes. Not a single bible was burned and not a single cross was harmed!!" the department wrote in a Facebook post, which immediately went viral as they shared photos of a pile of about a dozen intact Bibles surrounded by the rubble.
No firefighters were injured in the operation and the cause of the fire is still unclear.
"On March 3 around 12:58am our department was dispatched to assist Beaver VFD with a structure fire at the Freedom Ministries Church, located in Grandview WV. Though odds were against us, God was not.
Picture this, a building so hot that at one point in time, firefighters had to back out. In your mind, everything should be burned, ashes. Not a single bible was burned and not a single cross was harmed!! Not a single firefighter was hurt! Prayers for the pastor and the congregation today" the post read.
