Fire destroys historic Bunkie church

 Bystanders stood in the autumn cold and shook their heads in disbelief as they watched firefighters battle the flames consuming David Haas Memorial Methodist Church Sunday night.
    The church, located on Church Street in Bunkie, was fully engulfed in flames as fire departments from Avoyelles and Rapides parishes arrived to try to save the building and protect other structures.
    The current church building opened in 1952 and is one of the most photographed buildings in Bunkie.
