EUDORA, Kan. — A fire earlier this week at a historic church in Eudora, Kansas is being investigated as arson.
The Eudora Fire Department responded to the structure fire at 7th Street and Church Street just after 12:30 p.m. Sunday, May 29.
When crews arrived, they found fire coming out of the front windows of the structure that was formerly used as a church.
No injuries were reported from the incident.
The Kansas Fire Marshal’s Office told FOX4 the fire was determined incendiary and any further information would be released by the Eudora Police Department.
