A fire damaged a church in Mercedes and a investigation is underway to find the cause of the blaze.
The fire damaged the sanctuary at the First United Methodist Church on Monday and also destroyed a large pipe organ. Church officials are not sure how long it will take to repair the damages, but Pastor Devlon Goodman is thankful for their quick action in putting out the flames. For now church goers will hold mass at the fellowship hall as the repairs begin on the church.
