Man’s body found after church catches fire
An autopsy will be performed after a man’s body was discovered inside a Maryland church building that had caught fire.
Prince George’s County firefighters arrived early Saturday at the Celestial Church of Christ in Riverdale and found the one-story building on fire. Fire department spokesman Mark Brady said it took a half hour to extinguish the blaze, and shortly after investigators found the dead man.
The fire’s cause remained under investigation and the dead man’s name won’t be released until the autopsy is complete.
Damage to the building is estimated at $100,000.
