NC Church Sustains $75K in Damages from Electrical Fire

GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA – A large Wendover Avenue church sustained $75,000 in damage Wednesday morning after an electrical fire broke out in the attic.

Crews responded to Shining Light Baptist Church on 4530 W. Wendover Ave. around 8:40 a.m. Wednesday.

Guilford County fire marshal Alan Perdue said the fire seems to have started with an electrical junction box in the attic, and crews had to cut a hole in the roof in order to gain access to the attic.

There was smoke and water damage to the sanctuary, Perdue said. The neighboring Shining Light Academy was not affected by the fire.
