BUNKIE, La. (KALB) – The Louisiana State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating a church fire in Bunkie.

Late Sunday night, David Haas Methodist Church on West Church Street caught fire.

The cause is still under investigation.

According to the Bunkie Fire Department there were no injuries and none of the neighboring homes had to be evacuated.

One neighbor told KALB he had never seen anything like this.

“My stepfather is a volunteer for Cheneyville Fire Department and when we got home his alarm went off and we came over and it was a major fire,” explained Christopher Jenkins, Bunkie resident. “There was flames and smoke.”

We will update this story as soon as we get more information.
