CARTERET, N.J. (CBSNewYork) - St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church has been deemed a total loss after a massive fire began Tuesday night around 10 a.m.
The blaze grew to a 3-alarm fire as firefighters responded from multiple towns to the 700 block of Roosevelt Avenue in Carteret, CBS2's Cindy Hsu reports.
The church was built in 1954 but, but now - because of the extent of the fire, smoke and water damage - it will need to be gutted and rebuilt.
A fundraising effort is underway to help rebuild the church.
