RAHWAY, N.J. (AP) - Officials have temporarily shuttered a New Jersey church following a roof collapse that occurred during an Easter Sunday service.

But it’s still not clear what caused the collapse at the Korean Union United Methodist Church in Rahway.

Officials say a separate congregation that rents out space at the church was staging a service there when the collapse occurred around 2 p.m. Congregants were reportedly singing when they heard a cracking sound from above and debris began falling down on them.

Authorities say dozens of people were in the church at the time, including several children. Emergency responders helped several people get out of the church.

One person was seriously injured, while about a dozen others had minor injuries. None of the injuries were considered life-threatening.
