Heavy smoke then flames ripped through the former building for Unity Missionary Baptist Church as firefighters arrived around 10:45 p.m.  The church building is  located in the 5400 block of Elgin Street.

As parts of the aging building began to sag and collapse, firefighters quickly moved to fight the flames defensively.
