SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - An overnight fire caused significant damage to a church in Scottsbluff.

The Scottsbluff Star-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1UKcVnk ) authorities believe lightning caused the fire at Zion Evangelical Church.

A neighbor called firefighters around 12:30 a.m. Sunday after noticing flames coming from the roof of the building.

Investigator Anthony Murphy says most of the damage affected the church’s activity center. A kitchen area also sustained some water damage.

Church member Mark Harris says services were held at the building Sunday morning.
