Yet another fire at an abandoned downtown Kitchener church.

Emergency crews were called to the church at Frederick Street and Duke Street just after 3:00 a.m. Friday morning. 

Kitchener Fire said a security team that was deployed to overlook the old Trinity United Church spotted the fire.

The nearby YWCA has been evacuated as a precaution. The residents have since returned to the shelter.

According to Kitchener Fire, no one was inside of the church when the flames erupted.

 

 

Fire crews were only at the site a day ago after a fire caused $100,000 worth of damage Thursday morning.

Trinity United has been empty for over a year now, so that it can be torn down to make way for a high-rise building.

The cause of the initial fire is still not known.

Anyone with information regarding the fire is asked to call police 519-570-9777 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
