The Abuja parish of one of Nigeria’s top new generation churches, House On The Rock, was engulfed with fire yesterday, Sunday 25th of June, 2017. The incidence occurred a couple of hours after the service for the day had closed.
According to eyewitness reports, officials of the firefighter and emergency service got to the location swiftly enough to rescue people and avoid any human casualties before they could contain the fire that had destroyed a huge part of the structure.
Fortunately for the church, the structure caught by fire isn’t the one currently being used to hold services. Church officials confirmed that the building was still under renovation. The cause of the fire was yet to be ascertain as at the time of press briefing.
We bless the name of the Lord for keeping His children safe and averting another tragedy in Christendom. We advise that churches and indeed Christians keep to safety regulations as this is our civic responsibility.
