Byne Baptist services go on as normal after fire

June 3, 2003

Albany -- Worship services should not be affected by the fire at Byne Memorial Baptist Church in Albany Monday night. Most of the fire damage was confined to a storage and dressing room upstairs in the church's main sanctuary building.

 There was some smoke and water damage to other parts of the building. The cleanup of the church is underway. Fire investigators say Monday's blaze was caused by an electrical problem. Byne Minister of Education Charlie Brown said "We currently do not know the cost of the overall damage. It should not prevent us from having our services on Sunday at this stage. We're planning on that. But we'll have to use the other parts of the building while they are cleaning it up for the next several days."

Byne plans to hold their Sunday service in their Sanctuary. Vacation Bible School will still be held next week as planned.
