Breaking News: Davy Jones Church Destroyed In Fire
Reported by Fred Velez
An early morning fire has destroyed the Beavertown church once owned by the late Davy Jones. The church was purchased by longtime fan Cathy Whitehead with the intention of fulfilling Davy’s dream of turning the church into a community center and museum.
Housemate Tommy Renino reported on his Facebook page:
It was about 2:00am. I was lying in bed looking at the my phone. I saw smoke in front of my face. I got up and turned on the light. I saw smoke coming out of the floor. I yelled to Cathy to wake up. Fire. I went to the front door and opened it up. I was immediately driven back by smoke and I had to close it right away. I got nine-one-one on the phone . I told Cathy we couldn’t go out the front. She told me that we could go out the back way. And that’s pretty much it. We left down the back stairs. By the time we got to the front of the church we saw that it was enveloped in flames. It went up within minutes. I couldn’t believe it. We don’t know if the cat’s got out. Had I not been awake we would not be here now.
