CLEVELAND -- An overnight fire has destroyed the Wilson United Methodist Church.

Firefighters rushed to save the church at 1561 E.55th but were unsuccessful. The fire started in the basement and the heavy smoke and flames made it a difficult fire to battle.

The Cleveland Fire Department was able to put the fire out Sunday morning. Demolition crews are now on scene to take the building down.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

No one was hurt in the fire.
