Waterloo church damaged by fire

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (WKOW) -- A fire in a church in Jefferson County won't keep its members from getting together.

 Firefighters from 16 different departments were called to Cornerstone Church in Waterloo around 9:45 Monday night.

Pictures from the church's Facebook page show the damage was extensive.

The church will be closed while firefighters look into what happened.

"The sanctuary is still intact but it's got heavy smoke damage. A lot of extreme damage within the classrooms," says Fire Chief Vern Butzine.

No one was inside when the fire started.

A volunteer firefighter, who's also a member of the church ,says the congregation will hold its usual Sunday service at Firemen Park in Waterloo.
