ATF, SBI Help Investigate Fire At Bath Church

Federal and state investigators have joined in the probe into a fire Wednesday night at a Beaufort County church.

The fire happened Wednesday at Christian Chapel Church of Christ on South White Post Road in Bath around 6:00 pm.

Bath Volunteer Fire Department Chief John Taylor says a member of the church discovered the fire after arriving to set up for a meeting.

Taylor says the fire was near the back of the church near the kitchen and was already out when they got there. He is labeling it suspicious right now because they can't determine how it started.

The actual fire damage was confined to the kitchen, while there was smoke damage throughout the church.

Thursday morning agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms, the SBI and sheriff investigators were at the church.
