Vehicles also burned
A fire south of Clyde this afternoon burned four structures at the House of Yahweh compound.
Four structures, two recreational vehicles and two vehicles were burned, said Clyde Fire Chief Billy Dezern. Fire fighters had the fire contained about 3 p.m. but were still assessing the damage.
Many members of the House of Yahweh religious sect live in trailer homes at the compound.
The House of Yahweh compound covers about 44 acres near Abilene.
The sect’s leader, self-proclaimed prophet Yisrayl Hawkins, is accused of having more than 20 wives and performing polygamous weddings.
