Fire at First Presbyterian Church in Tamaqua


TAMAQUA, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) An investigation is underway after a church fire in Schuylkill County.

    According to officials, the fire broke out at this former church last night around 11:30 PM.

    The First Presbyterian Church is located on West Broad Street in Tamaqua.

    The church closed down about ten years ago when it was bought by an artist, but members of the community are still upset about what happened.

“It’s such a shame to see a historical landmark like this heavily damaged or possible destroyed by this fire last night butt it’s quite a historic component of our national historic district here in Tamaqua,” said Dale Freudenberger, president of the Tamaqua national historical society.

    No word yet on what started the fire in Schuylkill County.
