“It was gut-wrenching. It almost keep me from crying because we upgraded the church. We put the Internet in. We were electronic,” said Barbara Hebert-Evans, evangelist at the church.
As if the fire wasn't bad enough, the pastor and his family spent Tuesday picking up the pieces, trying to salvage what they could.
Their biggest problem was they didn't have insurance.
“It could be our life. You know? So, I thank the Lord for that,” said Sang Stacey, the pastor’s wife.
Earlier on Monday night, a neighbor saw two men taking things out of the storage trailer.
“We knew that Vallero was going to tear [the trailer] down, so we didn't think nothing of it,” Stacey said.
