Fire Damages Boyle Heights Church

(CNS) – A fire Tuesday damaged a two-story building housing a church, but no one was hurt.

About 50 firefighters were called to 2312 E. Whittier Blvd. in the Boyle Heights area at 2:40 p.m. and had the blaze knocked down in 36 minutes, said Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

He said the cost of damages is still being figured out as investigators worked to find out the cause of the fire.

The building was used as a theater before being converted into a storefront church, officials said.
