SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A fire of unknown origin gutted a Midway-area church building Tuesday afternoon.
The blaze at the unoccupied Iglesia de Cristo complex in the 3500 block of Enterprise Street was reported shortly after 1:30 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.
About five minutes after starting to attack the flames inside the modular structure, firefighters had to back out because sections of the floor were collapsing, SDFRD spokesman Maurice Luque said.
It took about an hour to fully douse the fire from the outside of the building, which consisted of three attached double-wide trailers housing classrooms and office space.
"It was a very stubborn fire," Luque said.
