WALLACE, DUPLIN COUNTY -

Firefighters battled a fully-engulfed fire at an abandoned church in downtown Wallace Tuesday night, at the corner of Raleigh and Boney Streets.

Wallace Fire Department officials says at least five fire departments have worked to extinguish the blaze of the church, which they say has been abandoned for about 10 years.

The fire call came out around 9 p.m., and two hours later, firefighters were still working to contain the blaze.

No injuries have been reported.
