Firefighters save Baytown church

A Baytown church congregation thanks firefighters for saving their church from a flooding disaster. Employees of trinity Episcopal church of Baytown have heavy duty fans drying out the church. Tuesday's heavy storm blew rain into a new wing of the church under construction, filling up the church with two inches of water. The storm also tripped the fire alarm and alerted Baytown firefighters.

"They came in and found the damage and then they called another fire house," said Robert Horton with the church. "That firehouse brought out squeegees and mops and they squeegee and mopped the water out of this church and moved the furniture and told us what we needed to do."

The church leaders said the rain would have caused a catastrophe if the firefighters had not helped out. The church plans to have services on Sunday.
