Gurley church fire ruled accidental

GURLEY, AL (WAFF) - The state fire marshal’s office is calling the Gurley church fire an accident.

Mount Pisgah Seventh Day Adventist church caught fire just minutes after parishioners left on Sunday, March 24.

Fire investigators say an asphalt company repaving the parking lot used a torch to soften pavement too close to the building.

It caught the fellowship hall side on fire.

No one noticed before it spread.
