MACON, Ga. (AP) -- The state fire marshal's office is investigating a blaze that gutted a church sanctuary in south Macon.

Reports say that flames tore through the roof of the Reaching Souls Cathedral of Praise Apostolic Church early Monday morning. Macon-Bibb County firefighters were dispatched to the church around 12:30 a.m. Monday.

Macon-Bibb fire investigator Sgt. Ben Gleaton says the building was gutted and its side brick wall was in danger of collapse.

There were no reports of injuries in the fire.
