Fire destroyed Sacred Hearts Roman Catholic Church at 4680 U.S. Route 42 outside of Mount Gilead early Thanksgiving morning.

The massive blaze was reported by a newspaper carrier. Five fire departments raced to the scene and found the church fully engulfed.

The church's pastor, Rev. John Bakle, declined comment, although he did talk briefly with Chief Greg Young, who says Bakle was sleeping in the house next door to the church and unaware of the fire until he heard the trucks arrive. 

 Young says Bakle is very distraught over seeing his church as a total loss.  The fire was under control in about two hours, but Mount Gilead and Cardington firefighters remained on the scene for several more hours dousing hot spots.

 The State Fire Marshall is assisting with the investigation into the cause. No one was hurt.
