GRANDVIEW, Mo. (KCTV) - The authorities are trying to figure out what caused an early Thursday morning fire that destroyed a Grandview church.

Crews responded at 12:34 a.m. to Impact Church, on the southeast side of Main Street and U.S. 71 Highway in Grandview.

When firefighters arrived, the church was engulfed in flames.

Firefighters went into full defensive mode when the fire went through the roof and the roof started sagging, the fire department told KCTV5 News.

Crews from Belton and Kansas City went to the scene to help, as well.

No one was hurt. The church was unoccupied when the fire happened.

Later on Thursday, the fire department stated that “the church and its contents are a total loss.”

Throughout the day, firefighters will be working to handle hot spots that remain inside.

Grandview Fire Department investigators are working to determine what caused the fire. ATF is assisting them. It is required that ATF be involved when there is a fire at a place of worship, the fire department noted.
