A Jackson's Gap Baptist Church van caught fire Wednesday evening on Midway Estates Road on its way to pick up children for bible class.
Alexander City Fire Department and Jackson's Gap Volunteer Fire Department responded to the vehicle fire.
The van's occupants, including pastor Charlie Horton and several other church members, exited the vehicle when it started smoking. The van caught fire shortly thereafter. No children had been picked up yet and none of the vehicle's occupants were injured.
