Firefighters responding to reports of an electrical fire at a Houston church found no signs of a blaze, but instead discovered an illegal game room inside, authorities said.

Four people were found Friday trapped inside a room containing 100 gambling machines at the Word of Life Church, KHOU-TV reported

The person who reported the fire told authorities he was locked in by an electronic door lock, KTRK-TV reported.

Harris County Sheriff’s deputies led several people out of the building in handcuffs but later released them. One person was arrested for an outstanding warrant.

  1. Word of Life church = Prosperity Gospel = “pray and grow rich” by using gambling machines… Gee I figure a bookie would be more fair…at least you have a better shot a “growing rich”… after all, that gambling win would have to become a “tithe”, right? According to John “Prayer Shawl” Hagee, the word DEBT means “doing everything but tithing.”
