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.

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.
