A two-alarm fire has gutted a Ukrainian church in Brampton, leaving only a skeleton.
Crews brought in about 15 trucks to battle the blaze at St. Elias the Prophet Church on Heritage Road, near Bovaird Drive West, on Saturday morning.
A witness told 680News the fire was “massive.” {click above News link for more]

REBUILDING SAINT ELIAS – It was with sadness and shock that we witnessed our church building burn to the ground on the morning of Saturday, April 5, 2014. We are greatly relieved that no-one was injured, and grateful for the support that started to pour in before the flames were even extinguished. Those of us who were blessed to experience the beauty and tranquility of our dear church know how much it will be missed. Those of you who were around to build it know how much work lies ahead. But for now, we thank God for those things that fire can not destroy, and remind ourselves that God’s people are the Church. We will build a new home for them.
Temporarily, online donations can be given through CanadaHelps.org HERE.
