Firefighters spent hours Monday battling a fire at a church in Duncan.

Flames fueled by strong winds swept through Foursquare Gospel Church at 5th and Pine. Duncan firefighters, as well as other fire departments from Stephens County, had to go into defensive mode and fight the fire from outside because the fire was just too large.

Because of the powerful wind gusts, crews sprayed water on neighboring homes, businesses and lawns to prevent the fire from spreading.

There have been no reports of injuries. Investigators don't know yet what started the fire.
