Latter-day Saint Missionaries Extinguish Church Fire


Missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints discovered and extinguished a fire Monday afternoon in a church, according to authorities.

The group of missionaries was playing football at about 3 p.m. across the street from the Latter-day Saint church building, 1715 W. 1600 North, when a few of them had to use the restroom, according to Layton Fire Battalion Chief Jason Cook.

The missionaries had permission to use the church, and when they entered they saw smoke, Cook said.
