LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

The Longview Fire Department is on the scene of a structure fire at 110 Mopac Road.

Firefighters say the call came in at 2:17 p.m. Monday. The warehouse, engulfed in flames, collapsed when they arrived. The fire was contained around 4 p.m.

The property, which belongs to Miracle Prayer and Praise Cathedral, was used to store old church pews and clothes for the needy. Representatives with the church say they planned on demolishing the warehouse to build low income housing and a recreational facility for their ministry. The church had a grant for the renovation and planned on bulldozing the site in the next few weeks.
