DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - A fire that gutted a longtime Decatur church somehow avoided a Bible surrounded by a Nativity scene.

Interim pastor Brian McLaughlin said they had been placed for a
Christmas celebration and it was amazing the fire didn't destroy

The church dates back 108 years and its sanctuary was built in

The church, which has about 110 members, went up in flames Wednesday night.

The cause was being investigated, but fire officials said there was nothing suspicious about it.

Firefighters had difficulty battling the blaze because it started in an attic.
