    "It's crazy," said pastor Wayne Biggs. “Totally crazy. We're gonna be okay. The Lord's gonna take care of us."

    There were no injuries. Witnesses say the fire spread quickly.

    "It was a tornado of fire as it shot through the roof," said David Williams. "About 20 min before that, there was a small flame on the other side of the peek and it flowed over to the other side of the church. It just shot through the roof and it was a spectacular fire. It turned into a tornado of flame."
