ABILENE, Texas (AP) - A fire has destroyed an Abilene center that supplies food, clothing and household items to those in need.

Lt. Mike Miller of the Abilene Fire Department tells The Associated Press that the fire on Saturday destroyed the structure that housed the Christian Service Center.

Fire officials said Monday that because of the amount of destruction, they are unable to determine the cause of the fire.

Jim Clark, director of the nonprofit Christian Service Center, tells KTXS-TV (https://bit.ly/1TvYToA ) that he was thankful no one was hurt.

Fire officials say the structure wasn’t occupied when the fire broke out.

Clark says, “We’re going to regroup. We’re going to trust God to provide, and we’ll just start over and hopefully find a temporary place to keep serving people.”
