TUALATIN, Ore. (AP) -- Fire officials say an early morning blaze at a Tualatin, Ore., church caused major damage to the church's sanctuary, meeting rooms and an attached preschool.
No injuries were reported in Monday's blaze at the Living Savior Lutheran Church.
Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue spokesman Brian Barker says 60 firefighters battled the three-alarm blaze. He says crews were driven out of the building due to the volume of fire and growing concerns about the structural integrity of the building.
Fire investigators are working with Tualatin police and Oregon State Police to determine the cause of the fire.
