Fire destroys cherished Ukrainian church in Brampton

A two-alarm blaze reduced the St. Elias the Prophet Church to a skeleton structure Saturday morning.

The cause of the fire to the church on Heritage Road, near Bovaird Drive West, is still unknown. But fire officials say the wooden structure coupled with strong winds fuelled the flames.

“The fire had a large head start and we were unable to catch up,” fire officials told CityNews.
