historic church was built in the early 1900s. Firefighters were able to stop the blaze, but the roof had collapsed and the church had suffered extensive damage. The fire began as Minneapolis jurors started deliberating in the Derek Chauvin murder trial. Arson investigators are involved, there but no statements have been released on what caused the fire.
