Fire crews spent the day Friday putting out hot spots that continued to burn through the afternoon. Heavy machinery was brought in to tear down the remaining structure. Fire Inspector Tony Arpin says the areas of the building that are still standing are too unstable to allow anyone to enter. The instability could make it difficult to find an exact cause of the blaze.
A notification has been made to the State Fire Marshal’s Office and Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms as standard protocol for church fires.
There were no injuries reported.
