A split beam is forcing Huntsville’s Salvation Army Church to close. It happened this week in the roof of the building, which will be closed anywhere from two to six weeks.

Major Darren Wiseman says they are working on a temporary location to hold services and the food bank.


However, that hasn’t been decided on yet as Wiseman says they’re waiting to get the okay from headquarters. Nobody was injured when the beam split, but Wiseman says there are safety concerns with letting people in the building now.

The Salvation Army Thrift Store on King William was unaffected by the incident.
