An early-morning fire heavily damaged the Holy Family Catholic Church in Burns Tuesday. Burns Fire Chief Scott Williamson said the alarm was called in shortly before 1 a.m. at the church. About 15 firefighters from the Burns, Hines and Paiute Fire Departments battled the blaze, keeping it from reaching a separate church structure to the north. "Preliminary reports indicate that the fire seems to have started in the rafters of the central part of the building, and was very likely electrical" Williamson said. The hall is a 55-year-old single-story building with a large gathering hall, kitchen and classrooms, totaling 6,300 square feet. No injuries were reported and no evacuations required of any nearby structures. The Fire Chief said the State Fire Marshal’s Office would be helping to determine the cause. The Bishop serving the area said the cost of replacing the structure could top $1 million.
