The main building of a Nepean church will have to be torn down after a major fire. At one point yesterday, a dozen fire crews battled the blaze at Living Waters Christian Assembly church near Merivale and West Hunt Club Roads. Reports of fire and smoke came in just before 4 p.m., and the first crews were on the scene at 105 Slack Road within minutes. Their efforts were hampered by frigid temperatures.
Shortly after 9 p.m., Ottawa Fire Services sent a statement confirming that heavy equipment crews would be making their way to the church to demolish the remainder of the main building for “security reasons.” No injuries reported, and there’s no estimate of damage as yet. (CBC, local files)
