JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A church in Jackson off of Texas Avenue caught fire on Thursday.

The Jackson Fire Department received a call about the fire at 2 p.m., when firefighters would find the Spoken Word Ministries church building smoking.

Clyde Rudd, the pastor, says he and his wife were inside of the church building when a neighbor ran in and told them the building was on fire.

Pastor Rudd says he thinks the fire started in the attic.

Station 6 responded within minutes to put out the fire. Investigators say no one suffered any burns or injuries.
