Emergency crews responded to a large fire at a Cabarrus County church that sparked during Monday’s strong storms.
The fire broke out before 7 p.m. at the Victory Temple church on Cline School Road in Concord. Officials have not said what started the fire, but the flames began as storms with heavy lightning moved through the area.
The church appeared to be fully engulfed by flames as firefighters worked to stop the blaze.
One firefighter was treated at the scene for heat-related injuries and released.
