Fire tears through, guts Bronx church
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Church members are picking up the pieces after a fire gutted their house of worship in the Bronx.
The flames broke out around 6 p.m. Sunday on the second floor of the Burke Avenue Baptist Church in the Laconia section.
While they quickly brought the fire under control, nothing inside the church was spared.
Two people were inside when the fire alarm went off, but they escaped safely.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
