FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Federal, state and local fire investigators are working to determine the cause of a fire that damaged a 120-year-old historic church in Fayetteville.

Local media outlets report it took crews about 90 minutes on Tuesday evening to extinguish the fire in St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church.

The church was built in 1896 and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places back in 1982.

The church suffered extensive fire damage to its roof and attic while the sanctuary sustained smoke and water damage.
