Fire consumed a historic church near Dover early on New Year's Eve and sent three firefighters to a hospital.
Shortly before 1 a.m. Monday, the Cheswold Volunteer Fire Department responded to a fire at the one-story Little Union Church at 5083 W. Denneys Road. Firefighters arrived to find the church with fire shooting from several windows, according to the company's Facebook post.
A wall collapsed shortly after firefighters extinguished the blaze, according to the post.
Three firefighters were injured, the post said. They were treated at Kent General Hospital and listed in good condition, according to Assistant State Fire Marshal Michael Chionchio.
Dover and Leipsic fire departments also responded, as did medics. Units cleared the scene at about 4 a.m.
