Smoke could be seen coming from the Full Gospel Assembly Church on Mount Pleasant Avenue East earlier tonight.
City fire crews responding and quickly knocked the blaze down.
The source of the smoke was a plastic drain pipe that has an electrical wire in it to keep the water from freezing.
Platoon Chief Eric Garland tells CHSJ News people were in the church when the call came in.
He says they did a search anyway but everyone was out of the building when crews arrived on scene.
Garland says the cause is likely accidental but a fire investigator was brought in anyway.
