Electrical Fire Causes Minor Damage At Presbyterian Church

By Staff, 01/7/21 8:29 PM

An electrical fire caused minor damage to one of Hope’s landmark churches on Thursday. Someone noticed smoke from the rear of First Presbyterian Church at 701 South Main early in the morning and called in the alarm.  Firemen found an electrical malfunction had caused a breaker box to catch fire at the rear of the building.  The circuits in the box were live despite the breaker not being used specifically anymore.  There were no injuries and firemen were able to quickly identify the cause and get the fire out.
