A four-alarm fire destroyed a church in Danbury Saturday afternoon.

The fire occurred at St. Nicholas Church on Pembroke Road just before 2 p.m.

Mutual aid from nearby towns were called in to help fight the blaze.

Damage to the building was severe. Mayor Mark Boughton said no one was injured.

According to the Fire Chief, the fire was so intense inside the church they had to use three ladder hoses to distinguish the fire.

"Church fires are notorious for being difficult to fight and successfully saved. They're large open structures and it's difficult to put it out and that’s what happened here," said Danbury Fire Chief Goeff Herald.

Firefighters were able to save the front portion of the church. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
