Fire Destroys Former Chuch
FORT DODGE, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - The state Fire Marshal's office is trying to figure out what caused a devastating fire in Fort Dodge.
Fire crews were called to a former church on 11th St. and First Ave. around 2 Saturday afternoon.
Several departments battled the blaze for hours and in the midst of the fight two exterior walls of the building collapsed.
No injuries have been reported but the building sustained heavy damage.
In the early 1900's the building belonged to the Bethlehem Lutheran Church but in the 1950's, the Fort Dodge Church of Christ moved in.
The church was sold in 1985 and since then has been privately owned.
