ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– Fire damaged a part of a church in Vinita Park.

Firefighters were called to the Village Church of St. Louis on Page Avenue late Thursday afternoon after smoke was seen coming from the church’s bell tower.

Extra manpower was called in and they managed to contain the flames to a stage in the worship area.

Right now it looks like an electrical fire, but firefighters want to be sure.

Nobody was in the church at the time and no injuries were reported.
