Truck 63 was first to arrive on scene at 5:08 a.m., with nothing showing from the exterior of the 19883 square foot, single story church.
With the fire out, personnel completed a search of the church and found it to be unoccupied. Thermal imaging cameras were used to check for fire extension and hot spots. Crews set up a series of ventilation fans to remove smoke from the church and minimize smoke damage.
The cause of the fire has not been determined and no estimate of damages has been released. A fire inspector is en route to the scene to begin an investigation. It is unclear at this time when that investigation will be completed.
Brevard County Fire Rescue spokesman Lt. Jeffrey Taylor said that the following agencies assisted at the scene: Melbourne Fire Department, Satellite Beach Fire Department, Indian Harbor Beach Volunteer Fire Department, Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Power & Light.
