UPDATE 7/22/2014, 9:44 a.m.
KUOW's Lisa Brooks checked back in with Bruce Craven Tuesday morning to get an update on how his town was faring after the Carlton Complex fire ripped through Thursday evening.
He said the fire he witnessed in Pateros burned up the vegetation all around his church, but the structure itself is intact, albeit with char marks on the outside and broken windows.
Residents including Craven were able to attend services there on Sunday. Craven said many congregants had lost everything in the fire.
