An early Saturday morning fire destroyed much of a church in Louisiana.

According to WBRZ, the major fire destroyed part of St. Luke's Episcopal Church on Goodwood Blvd.

An off-duty police officer noticed the fire and that is when the fire department was notified. Sadly, by the time they arrived, much of the sanctuary was engulfed in flames.

A portion of the church collapsed as firefighters were battling the blaze, but no one was inside of the structure when it collapsed.

WBRZ reports the church was destroyed in the fire, while the educational side of the building was not.

Here's a look at the fire from the Baton Rouge Fire Dept.
