First Baptist Fire BY MOLLY BEYER writer
On Nov. 24 there was a fire at The First Baptist Church, located on Second Street. It was only a small fire caused by someone lighting a sweatshirt on fire. McMinnville Fire Department responded and the fire was put out quickly. No one was hurt. The exterior of the building was barely harmed because the sprinkler system quickly put out the fire. Erika Marksbury, a pastor at the church said, “It was unsettling, I was glad our sprinklers worked.” She was also surprised by the help and support they got from
both the community and the firefighters who responded. “A lot of people care about this place.” Emma Linder, a freshman who attends the church said, “It was really sad to hear that someone would do that.” Another member of the church, Francis Huff, said, “The fire was unsettling and I’m glad the fire was quickly put out. I don’t know why someone would purposely set a fire at our church.” Huff added that everything is back to normal and hopes there are no more incidences.
