A Baptist church in Ranger, Texas, was destroyed Thursday when flames ripped through the 103-year-old building.
The police department there and other historic buildings were also burned down, according to the Dallas TV station WFAA.
Roy Rodgers, a deacon at Second Baptist Church, revealed that the building’s third floor and roof had collapsed.
The building also showed significant smoke and water damage.
“It’s heartbreaking,” said Rodgers, who has been a member of the Church since 1969.
“A lot of people take it pretty hard because a lot of people have ties to the church.”
