CHICAGO — Flames burst through the roof of Love, Faith and Praise Church of God in Christ in Englewood as firefighters arrived on the scene early this morning, fire officials said.
The Fire Department responded to the extra-alarm fire at 6948 S. Stewart Ave. at about 4 a.m. It was under control by 5:30 a.m, officials said.
Because of concern about a potential collapse, firefighters fought the blaze from outside the church.
There were no injuries. Police and fire personnel were still investigating the cause, police said.
