Pleasant Hill Christian Church was destroyed by fire at 5:30 p.m. July 19.
Several residents heard when lightning struck but did not know what was hit. Charles Burgin immediately went in his car to see if the church had been struck but didn’t see any evidence so he returned to his home for supper. A short time later he looked in the direction of the church and saw the entire building in flames.
Lightning struck in a gable and was burning in the loft.
