Fire broke out on Sunday at the House on the Rock Church in Abuja. The church is located close to the National stadium Abuja and close to the City Gate.
Our correspondent who passed by the airport road on Sunday reports that the building was visibly ablaze while fire fighters were struggling to put out the flames.
The cause of the fire is yet unknown.
A member of the Church who spoke to our correspondent said that the main building had not been in use for a while now as renovation work was going on.
Mr Joseph Peter who sounded sad said that he just left the church at about 1:00P.M. Sunday afternoon after the day’s service and all was well.
House on the Rock Abuja Church popularly called “The Refuge” by church members was formed in 1999 as a springboard for strategic ministry in the northern region of Nigeria and beyond.
