Fire destroyed an abandoned church in north Edmonton overnight.

A spokesperson for Edmonton Fire Rescue Services (EFRS) said the blaze broke out at 1:55 a.m. with crews arriving at 2:10 a.m.

Fire officials were not sure of the name of the church located on a rural road near 227 Ave and 34 Street in north Edmonton.

EFRS said the fire posed a challenge for crews because there are no hydrants in the area. As a result, two tankers and three pump trucks were sent to the scene.
