A fire broke out on Sunday at St. Anthony Coptic Orthodox Church in Annville, Pennsylvania. There was a service underway on the second floor. The building was evacuated, and there were no injuries.

From the article:
Quote
The cause of the blaze is still under investigation, although it is being ruled accidental, he said. He estimated damage at $5,000. Firefighters were on the scene until about 2:30 p.m.

Because the fire started in a church, agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were called to the scene. A state police fire marshall also is investigating the fire.
