MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - North Memphis church members are accessing damage caused by a Monday afternoon fire.

Memphis firefighters rushed to the Power of the World Church on Springdale near Devoy around 2:15 p.m. on Monday, April 1. Smoke was pouring out of the church when firefighters arrived.

Fire crews were able to put the fire out quickly, which started near the church's pulpit.

"It is an older building - that was a concern on the initial call, older structures tend to burn quicker - but we were able to gain entry and locate the source of the fire relatively quickly," stated Lt. Wayne Cooke with the Memphis Fire Department.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
