Fire Destroys Vacant Church in Detroit's Midtown

DETROIT (AP) -- A Midtown Detroit church -- vacant for a decade or more -- has been destroyed by fire.
Flames were reported about 7 a.m. Saturday coming from the 125-year-old building which had been home to the First Unitarian Church of Detroit on Woodward Avenue, north of downtown.
No injuries were reported.
First Battalion Fire Chief Kevin Kortas tells WWJ-AM that the cause of the fire is under investigation.
The radio station reports that the church was built in 1889.
