Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - Fire at a church in Valley City caused more than $1 million in damages.

It leaves the congregation at Faith Lutheran Church with no place to worship.

Fire crews say the call came in just before 4 this morning.

When they arrived, heavy smoke and flames were pouring out of the doors and windows.

It took the crew of about 25 nearly three hours to get everything under control.

Gary Retterath- Valley City Fire Chief: “A lot of smoke coming out of different openings, with fire coming out this entryway and the office window. There was quite a bit of fire, so we attacked it here and knocked it down; then worked our way in.”

They're still trying to determine the cause.
