You have to have a lot of sympathy for this fellow, whose house burned down while he was across the street at church.
A Cayce house belonging to a preacher burned down Sunday while he was in his church across the street, a Cayce official said. “When we got there, it was totally engulfed in flames,” said Lt. Jeff Simmons of the Cayce Public Safety Department. “We tried to do what we could but it was too far gone. The house was a pretty much a total loss, and so were the contents.” The pastor, James C. Smith, was at a service at the Calvary Holiness Church of God when the fire broke out, Simmons said.
