Plain Township Fire Department, with the help of North Canton's department, battled a fire at the Cathedral of Life Ministries at 4111 38th St. NW, Wednesday morning.
At just about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, fire crews arrived to a fire that had already torn through a portion of the second floor of the building, where it is believed to have started, and then down to the first. Classrooms are housed on that second floor and some damage was reported; no word on the extent.
While clergy do live on the grounds where the building is located, no one was inside the building at the time of the fire.
According to the Canton Repository, fire crews were still on scene at 8:45 a.m. Wednesday. Stark County Sheriff's Office was also on scene assisting with area traffic.
