Fire damages church | The Highland Current
The pastor is the former minister of Philipstown
A Yorktown Heights church run by a former Philipstown pastor may have been saved from destruction by the barking of a neighbor’s dog.
Firefighters arrived at the Yorktown Assembly of God at 12:45 a.m. on May 30 to fight a fire that started outside the building and reached the attic. A neighbor called 911 after being alerted to the flames by his German Shepherd. Authorities said the fire appeared to be accidental.
The church is headed by Don Foster, who was the Associate Pastor of the Assembly of God in Philipstown from 1985 to 1990 before becoming Senior Pastor in Yorktown.
