Firefighters keep small fire from becoming large fire at historic church

Quick response by Hattiesburg firefighters kept a small fire from getting out of control at a historic Hub City church tonight.  An 8 p.m. fire in the pulpit area of the Faith and Fellowship Church on East 7th Street did do some minor damage to the interior of the decades-old building.

But, no one was there at the time and no one was injured.

Firemen say it most likely was an electrical fire.

Church members said some work on the building had been done recently.
