Bell County Church Damaged in Fire


Fire officials are investigating a fire that ripped through part of a church.

Parishioners were holding an evening mass at Christ the King Catholic Church at 210 East 24th Avenue in Belton around midnight Tuesday when a fire broke out in a sanctuary with lit candles.

The Belton Fire Department battled the flames and got the fire put out.

The fire department's commander doesn't know what started it, but witness Anthony Garcia believes a candle is to blame.

No one was injured but the church is damaged.
