Authorities probing Lebanon church fire

LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating a fire that destroyed a Lebanon church established in 1902.

According to fire officials, the fire broke out around 11 p.m. on Saturday at the Lebanon Church of God and took more than two hours to get under control.

Church member Tyson Kelley told WKRN-TV that it was a "tiny fire" when he arrived at the scene around 11 p.m., but had pretty much engulfed the whole church about 30 minutes later.

Church leaders say they plan to rebuild.
