A devastating fire ripped through Tri-Church Parish in Brocton early Sunday morning.

The church located on East Main Street in Brocton went up in flames around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

The church structure was totally destroyed.

Many residents recalled the memories they had in the church over the years. They said the historic building was a staple of the community and are in shock to learn that it's gone.

With Brocton being a small town, some residents told us they are worried that the community won't be able to afford to rebuild it.

The Chautauqua County Sheriff's office are investigating and officials have not yet determined a cause.

No injuries were reported.
