    An early-morning fire at a Smithfield church is under investigation.

    The fire at New Life Worship Center was reported just after 6 a.m. Monday and was quickly knocked down.

    The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. Because it is a house of worship, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has been called in.

    Fire officials say the fire started outside the building. The exterior was damaged, and the interior had some smoke damage.
