Mar 11, 2008 Full story: WEEK-TV

“The flames were shooting sky high. I thought we are in trouble, it's gone. And, there wasn't that many fire trucks here yet and it's bad. It's like you've lost something, part of you is gone. It's just as bad as losing a person”

Witnesses say a 120-year-old town sanctuary burned to the ground in Mapleton last night. via WEEK-TV

It is so amazing to hear the stories after being at the scene the night of the fire. I guess all small towns are probably the same but it kinda gets old.
Rumor has it I set this fire but I am amazed to think of why I would have had to have been pulled from it if I would have set it?
With any help from above we will be breaking ground on the new church before long.
