MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Due to the fire at Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church, Pastor Thomas Moton announced that the congregation will meet at First Baptist Church for worship on Sunday.

The service will be held in the Dale Huff Community Ministry Building at 305 South Perry Street from 11-12:30.

PMBC, located at 3601 Hayneville Road, caught fire early Monday morning. The church suffered extensive damage to the roof system and the interior.

The 100 year old house of worship appear is a total loss. There were no injuries, however.

The church family was planning a large anniversary celebration for next week to celebrate more than a century of worship.

An investigation is ongoing. There is no word on what started the fire. The Fire Department expects to wrap up the investigation on what caused the fire tomorrow.
