A church caught fire early Thursday morning in McDowell County. 

Dispatchers got a call just after 3 a.m. of a fire in the Iaeger area on Coon Branch Mountain.  The High Knob Church was destroyed in the blaze.  Iaeger Fire Department responded to the scene, but has cleared.

Nobody was inside the church, and crews are unsure at this time what caused this fire.
