MARNE, Mich. (WZZM) -- People driving past Marne last night called 911 after seeing what they thought was a church fire, but it turned out to be a neighbor burning his trash.

The WZZM 13 Information Center received reports from people saying they saw the roof of the Berlin Baptist Church on fire around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

When crews arrived, they found out the smoke was coming from a nearby home, where a man was burning garbage in his burn barrels.

Firefighters say there was no damage.
