CANTON, Minn. (KTTC) -- An investigation has revealed no cause of a fire that destroyed a historic church near Canton early Thursday.

Firefighters arrived to Henrytown Lutheran Church on County Road 18 in Fillmore County to find it engulfed in flames just before 3 a.m.

Crews on the scene said the fire started in the basement. The church was a total loss and had to be demolished.

Fillmore County Sheriff Tom Kaase said an investigation by the state fire marshal did not reveal a cause, but there was nothing suspicious found.

Kaase said deputies also investigated the nearby area and also found nothing suspicious.

The Henrytown Lutheran Church was built back in 1878.
