Rumble Firefighters had to battle bitter cold, an icy parking lot and flames as the Bethel A.M.E. Church at 111 N. Cherry St. caught fire overnight. The two-alarm fire sparked off at about 4 a.m. Wednesday. With temperatures hovering around 17 degrees, water froze almost instantly on the church parking lot, making a tricky job even more treacherous. Salt trucks were called in to treat the pavement.
