HUDSON, Fla. (AP) - A Florida church dedicated to feeding the homeless has been destroyed in a fire.
Fire rescue crews were called to the Lakeview Baptist Church in Hudson, about 45 miles north of Tampa, on Tuesday. Flames were shooting from the roof and the nearest hydrant was six blocks away.
Forty firefighters battled the flames, which took about an hour to get under control.
Pastor Harry Buckwalder says the church feeds about 180 families a week.
Investigators do not believe the fire is suspicious. They are examining whether an electrical problem in the kitchen started the blaze.
