The Alabama State Fire Marshal’s Office is assisting in the investigation into the cause of a fire that tore through a small church in rural Butler County Monday morning.

Butler County Sheriff Kenny Harden says foul play is suspected in the blaze that destroyed Consolation Baptist Church in the Oakey Streak Community on Oakey Streak Road near Red Level. It’s located near the Butler-Covington county line.

A photo taken at the scene by the sheriff’s department shows that the wooden church completely burned down and only charred rubble was left in the fire’s wake.

The fire was spotted around 9:30 a.m. Monday. Firefighters worked to extinguish the flames, but the structure is a complete loss, the sheriff said.

Harden said the church was not in use and didn’t have power running to it.

“We do suspect foul play,” Harden said. “We’ve had several arrests over the years of people breaking in and there are rumors that it is haunted so kids go there on the weekends.”

No one was injured. The graveyard at the church was not affected.
