Blaze damages Devils Lake church

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — Fire officials say early indications are that an electrical problem might have sparked a fire that heavily damaged a Devils Lake church.

Fire Chief Jim Moe says the inside of the Grace Baptist Church was destroyed in the blaze early Saturday morning, though the exterior walls are still standing.

Moe says the fire was discovered about 4 a.m. by an ambulance crew returning from an unrelated call. He says the blaze likely had been burning for some time before it was discovered.

No one was hurt.
