Fire destroyed Saint Nicholas Church in Danbury today.

Flames quickly spread through the church’s interior, and the roof collapsed.

City officials said the fire appeared accidental, but the cause had not yet been determined.

Mayor Mark Boughton says the doors were open, but no one was inside at the time.

“The building is a total loss, tragically to those parishioners who use it, they’re devastated with the loss of their worship facilities,” Boughton said.

Boughton says the city will help church leaders find a new gathering place elsewhere in the community.
