WINDER, Ga. -- Lightning may have been to blame for a massive fire at a historic church in Winder.

It's not yet clear what started the fire at the Sanctuary of the Holy Spirit at about 11 p.m. Thursday.

The church is more than 100 years old and just underwent a big renovation a few years ago.

"It breaks your heart," said church member Edgar Fussell. "We had just put so much into it, and we love the church so much and everything. It was where we was always going to go to church."

No one was hurt in the fire.
