Kansas City church building damaged by fire near 29th, Holmes

It happened just after 1 a.m. Tuesday at educational building that's associated with the Calvary Baptist Church at 29th and Holmes Road.

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- A fire overnight has left a Kansas City church in a bit of a mess.

It happened just after 1 a.m. Tuesday at educational building that's associated with the Calvary Baptist Church at 29th and Holmes Road.

Smoke ended up inside of the church, though they were able to open the doors to get the smoke out.

Because the fire happened at a church, as protocol, a bomb and arson team is investigating.

A church member says a conference was supposed to be held in the building this weekend. It was already rescheduled for Saturday, and he says now they’ll have to reschedule once again or cancel it.

No injures were reported.
