Fire destroys rural church

ROCHESTER, Ind. – A weekend fire destroyed much of a rural northern Indiana church that dated back nearly 140 years.

The fire burned through the roof of the sanctuary at the Bethlehem Baptist Church a few miles from Rochester.

WSBT-TV reported (http://bit.ly/1isLpsY ) no one was hurt in the fire, which had engulfed the building by the time firefighters arrived. A cause for the fire wasn’t immediately determined.

The church has about 30 members. Church member Stevie Sanders said he’s disappointed that he won’t be able to pass along the memories he has from the church if he ever has children of his own.
