Fire Destroys Church Retreat Building

A fire destroys a church retreat building near Hallsville Friday night.  Fire crews rushed to the blaze at the Dove Christian Retreat Center around 5:20 p.m. Friday night.  The retreat is located on FM 449 and Price Lane.  A double wide mobile home caught fire at the center and because of the remote location, firefighters say they were not able to get enough water to the fire.  The structure was a total loss.  Fortunately, no one was in the mobile home when the fire started and no one was injured.  The church was insured.
