A little less than a month after a fire was started at Peace United Church of Christ, church leaders and others gathered Thursday, May 12, 2022, to reflect on the fire, speak about the damage it caused and look toward the church’s future.
Members of the Rochester Fire Department were called around 9:45 p.m. to a home in the 900 block of 16 1/2 Street Southeast for a report of fire. When crews arrived, they found the homeowner outside of the residence along with a dog.
Rochester firefighters were called to the warehouse at the 1600 block of Opportunity Road NW just before 11 p.m. Saturday. As of Monday, there was no estimate available on how many packages were destroyed in the fire.
