PASS LAKE, Ont. — Fire has destroyed a historic church in the community of Pass Lake, east of Thunder Bay.
Salem Lutheran Church and an attached hall were consumed by flames early Tuesday morning.
No injuries have been reported.
The Pass Lake volunteer fire team and Shuniah firefighters both responded to the alarm.
Shuniah fire chief Blair Arthur says the blaze was well underway before anyone noticed it, as most of the structure was already engulfed by the time firefighters arrived.
The church, located on Highway 587 in Sibley Township, was 90 years old.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
