Demolition Begins On Washington Church Gutted By Fire


Demolition got underway Tuesday in Washington on a historic church that was gutted by fire earlier this year.

The First Christian Church on Second Street in Washington went up in flames back on April 28.

We spoke with Bryan Ross -- the head of properties -- back in July.

He told us that there were two possible locations for rebuilding -- where the church currently sits -- or on the property across the street used as a parking lot.

We're told that congregation members watched at noon today as the demo process began.
