A Robstown community church facility, that had been a fixture for decades, burned to the ground Wednesday night, after a fire tore through the building.
According to the Robstown Fire Chief, Richard Gonzales, a call came in at approximately 10:36 p.m. on Wednesday night. When firefighters arrived at the building on the 700 block of West Ave D, it was already completely engulfed in flames.
14 firemen, three EMS and several policing agencies were on hand to assist with putting the flames out. According to the Robstown Fire Department, the fire was controlled within 40 minutes, but the damage had already been done. The entire church facility building had been ravaged by the fire.
"We need to complete the investigation, and interview the tenants, before give out any information yet," said Fire Chief Gonzales. "But as of right now, the cause isn't known."
No injuries were reported.
