Fire Destroys Alliance Church

Fire struck the First Alliance Church in Toledo, Ohio, in the early morning hours of June 25, completely destroying the sanctuary of the 87-year-old building. While the church offices, foyer and annex were untouched by fire, they did incur extensive water and smoke damage. No one was in the building at the time.

Pastor Keith Sholl told local reporters, “It’s the memories of all the marriages, funerals, professions of faith and people —and to see this church go up in flames is hard to take.”

The fire was ruled accidental, and although the sanctuary is a total loss and will be demolished, church activities and Sunday services will continue as scheduled in two separate buildings across the street from the church.
