GREENVILLE, MS (AP) — Authorities say a fire has partially damaged a black church in Mississippi, and television images show “Vote Trump” spray-painted on an outside wall.

Fire Chief Ruben Brown tells The Associated Press that firefighters found flames and smoke pouring from the sanctuary of the Hopewell M.B Church just after 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Brown says there was also a political message spray-painted on the side of the church, but would not say what the message said.

“Vote Trump” is clearly visible in images of the church broadcast on television sites.
