Early morning fire destroys much of 249-year-old San Gabriel Mission church:
A fire broke out at the San Gabriel Mission early Saturday and burned the roof and much of the church’s interior, officials said.
Authorities have not determined what caused the blaze at the 249-year-old church on 428 S. Mission Drive.
The San Gabriel Fire Department received a call about the fire at around 4:30 a.m. and arrived at the scene to find flames through the roof, Capt. Antonio Negrete told KTLA.
