Fire broke out on Sunday at the House on the Rock Church in Abuja.

Our correspondent who passed by the airport road on Sunday reports that the building was visibly ablaze while fire fighters were struggling to put out the flames.

Coincidentally, there was a heavy downpour at the time our correspondent passed by.

The cause of the fire is yet unknown.

A member of the Church who spoke to our correspondent said that the main building had not been in use for a while now as renovation work was going on.

Mr Joseph Peter who sounded sad said that he just left the church at about 1:00P.M. Sunday afternoon after the day’s service and all was well.

According to a twitter user Abayomi Shogunle, there were 7 fire trucks at the church trying to put out the fire.
