Old Church of Scientology building in Dallas catches fire

Posted: Updated:

An old Church of Scientology property that caught fire on Thursday afternoon in East Dallas will be demolished.

The large mansion was located in the 1800 block of Buckner Boulevard near White Rock Lake and had pink walls and a red tile roof.

Dallas Fire officials said the roof's material makeup kept the fire inside the building and slowed firefighters to douse flames with water from above. The fire began somewhere inside and spread to the attic, then throughout the entire structure.

Fire investigators were unable to get inside the house until Friday morning to begin their work.

The church sold the property in 2008 and the building was unoccupied since the sale.

There were no reported injuries from the fire, which hit three-alarms at its peak.
