Johnstown Church Fire Rekindles

Tuesday Morning’s devastating fire at the Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Johnstown rekindled this morning around 5 am.

Jim McCann with the Johnstown Fire Department says crews were on scene throughout the day yesterday and then overnight.

He added some hot spots rekindled this morning when crews were not on scene. Officials have determined the church a total loss.

A State Police Fire Marshall is ruling the blaze an accident.

Johnstown Fire Chief Bob Statler tells us a faulty furnace was the cause.

The pastor of the church says they will move forward one day at a time.
