Charlotte Church Burns

Posted August 11, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— While some southern churches are still on the mend from last year's rash of church burnings, another has become a target.

Parishioners at Bible Tabernacle Church in Charlotte are just glad their sanctuary is intact.

Police say someone intentionally tried to burn the building down. Firefighters were able to put out the flames before they spread inside the building.

No one was hurt.

Police haven't named any suspects.
