A church on Winterpock Road in Chesterfield caught fire early Monday morning. A viewer of WAVY sister station WRIC 8News said they discovered the fire at Centenary UMC around 4 a.m., at which point “it was almost burnt to the ground.” A firefighter told 8News that nothing is left of the church except a couple stones in the front of the building. The fire was marked under control shortly after 6:30 a.m., but dozens of fire crews and police remain on scene. In a tweet, Chesterfield Fire PIO said, “Sad story for members of Centenary UMC.”
