The Community Church of PK, on FM 2353, caught fire Tuesday evening. While the structure remains standing, the interior suffered extensive damage. "I just feel blessed no one was in the building," said Terry Reynolds, the church's pastor. "A church is the people, this is just a building, it can be replaced." Possum Kingdom East Volunteer Fire Department received the call about 8 p.m. Units from Graford, Lone Camp and Mineral Wells VFDs also responded. "I know now how the people of the First Baptist Church felt," Reynolds said. The First Baptist Church of Possum Kingdom Lake was destroyed in the PK Complex fire in 2011.
Firefighters walk through the remains of the building s interior. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
