Investigators are trying to find out what caused a church fire in Mansfield on Thursday night.
A person passing by the Word of Life Family Church in the 2200 block of U.S. 287 first spotted the flames around 8:30 p.m.
Firefighters were called and they were able to get the fire under control within a couple of hours.
David Williams, a witness who watched crews put out the two alarm fire, said, "the flames shot through the roof and there was a spectacular fire that turned into a tornado of flames."
Investigators say it appears the fire damaged the church's offices as well as a sanctuary.
