Crews battle Pelham church fire

PELHAM, GA (WALB) - Fire officials with Grady County and Autry State Prison are battling a fire at a church in Pelham.

The fire has engulfed much of The Assembly Of Saints Church off of Spence Road.

The Autry State Prison fire chief said they aren't sure of the exact time the call came in, but it could have been around 11 a.m.

Officials say the church was up for sale and someone had just bought it and was looking to make it an active church again.

They also believe the fire started in the attic.

WALB's Ashlyn Becton is on the scene and will bring updates as they come in.
