Clinton Church Burns
Second Baptist Church on McMorris Street in Clinton was completely destroyed by a fire that started between midnight Thursday night and one o'clock Friday morning. A police patrol passed the church at twelve and saw nothing amiss.  On a second round around 12:45, police saw flames and called the local fire department. Witnesses said that the church was a total loss by 1:30 Friday morning.  No cause of the fire has been determined.

Church members will meet at First Christian Church on North Washington St. on Friday at 5:00 to discuss an interim meeting site.  The church was adding an annex near the building that burned. Pastor Larry Fraser said the church will be rebuilt. Donations were already coming in as the embers of the ruined church smoldered.

Below are photos taken Friday morning of a building that many in Clinton called their church home.
