Investigators say suspicious fire destroyed house owned by Fayette Co. church



FAYETTE COUNTY, Pa. - Investigators said a home owned by a Fayette County church was destroyed by a suspicious fire early Friday morning.

Firefighters were called to battle flames at a home on Main Street in Isabella. Officials said the home was owned by Wesleyan Methodist Church. The pastor of the church said he stays at the home on the weekends but was not in it at the time of the blaze.

"When we arrived on the scene, the house was fully engulfed," said Isabella Fire Department Capt. David Taylor. "Our main priority was to save the church beside it, and there was another house on the other side of the fire."

Taylor said the fire is suspicious.

"It's suspicious. Nobody seen anything. Nobody heard anything," Taylor said.

The fire marshal continues to investigate. No injuries were reported.
