CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — A church on Winterpock Road in Chesterfield caught fire early Monday morning.

A viewer of WAVY sister station WRIC 8News said they discovered the fire at Centenary UMC around 4 a.m., at which point “it was almost burnt to the ground.”

A firefighter told 8News that nothing is left of the church except a couple stones in the front of the building.

The fire was marked under control shortly after 6:30 a.m., but dozens of fire crews and police remain on scene.

In a tweet, Chesterfield Fire PIO said, “Sad story for members of Centenary UMC.”
