WEST MONROE, La. (AP) An early morning fire consumed and destroyed a West Monroe church.
Ouachita Parish fire investigator Curt Meachum says firefighters battled the blaze at Community of Christ Church for more than seven hours.
The first report of the fire came shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday from a caller who reported seeing flames some 30 feet in the air. Meachum says the scene was too hot late Wednesday to allow for an investigation into the fire's origin and likely cause.
No one was injured.
