Fire Destroys Brocton, NY Church

Posted: Updated:

Fire gutted an historic brick church in Brocton, NY early Sunday morning.  The tri-church parish is called the United Methodist and Lutheran Church. The fire at the brick church on Main Street was first reported at 1:30 AM Sunday.

Fire crews from Brocton needed help from several neighboring companies to keep the fire from spreading to the parsonage next door.

"Nobody was inside, it was basically keeping it contained and preventing it from spreading next door," said Fire Chief Brian Woleben.  "Now investigators are investigating, trying to determine a cause," added the chief.  Firefighters were on the scene battling flames for several hours overnight.
