January 11, 2014 Share

Gospel Outreach Church, former building for the Bargain Barn, caught fire a little before 6 p.m. on January 11, 2014. No one was inside at the time of the fire. Pickens County and State Marshals ruled the fire accidental with undetermined cause.

Pickens County and City of Jasper Fire Departments worked the fire with the help of City of Canton Fire utilizing their ladder truck. Pickens Sheriff's Office assisted with traffic because the road had to be closed until after midnight.

Georgia Power and Amicalola EMC both had lines near the building and power had to be shut off. ETC cable experienced an outage from the fire that was fixed early Sunday afternoon.

Gospel Outreach Church celebrated their one year anniversary in the building the previous week. They held their service on Sunday at the Pickens Chamber of Commerce.
