MOULTON, AL (WAFF) -

The investigation into a weekend church fire in Moulton will continue Monday.

The blaze started around 7:30 p.m. on County Road 221 at Pine Grove Holy Church of Christ.

Firefighters from Moulton, Speake, Caddo-Midway and Chalybeate responded to the fire.

The Caddo-Midway Fire Chief said when they arrived, the fire was coming from the attic. He said residents nearby saw flames and called for help. No one was inside at the time of the fire.

Officials said the main building was a total loss. There are several other buildings surrounding the church, but there's no word if or how much damage they sustained. 

The state fire marshal said there will be a joint investigation into the cause of the fire.

The congregation met on the church's front lawn Sunday morning to have their regularly scheduled Sunday service.

"It means a lot. We are just like a big family, you know we stick together. They are like my brothers and sisters," said church member Paralee Blaxton.
