Firefighters Puzzled: Massive Church Fire; Not A Single Bible Burnt

A church fire in West Virginia left firefighters stunned when they found Bibles untouched by the flames.

Early Sunday morning, the Coal City Fire Department responded to a fire at the Freedom Ministries Church in Grandview, a town in the mountains of West Virginia.

"Picture this, a building so hot that at one point in time, firefighters had to back out," the fire department wrote on Facebook. "In your mind, everything should be burned, ashes."

But the firefighters said not a single Bible was burned. Not a single cross was harmed. Not a single firefighter was hurt.

"Though odds were against us, God was not," the firefighters said, offering prayers for the pastor and congregation.

And in a Facebook post, Freedom Ministries wrote that "in the midst of the smoke you can see Jesus. He was there with us!"

The church is asking for prayer for Pastor Phil and Candice Farrington, whom they say have always given them love and support.
