Jackson church goes up in flames.

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT)- Sunday morning a Jackson church went up in flames. Firefighters first got the call just after 2:30 a.m.

 It's unclear the name of the church located at 109 Thousand Oaks Circle near Siwell Road. 

Division Chief R. D. Simpson says, "Upon arrival the building was about 30-40 percent involved".

The chief tells us, that while the cause of the fire has not been confirmed, there is a common factor during the cold season.

Simpson said, "We're getting into the cold weather season so everyone needs to be mindful of your heat sources. If you have space heaters be extremely cautious and know how to work your particular space heater. Also, be sure to check your units before putting them into full gear this heat season. We just want to be safe this winter."

Simpson says the fire was controlled and no other buildings were involved.
