No injuries were reported after a fire at the Holy Cross Church early Wednesday evening.

Responding officials found an attic fire at the church on Plumtree Road around 4:56 p.m.

There was a delay in reporting the fire as contractors accidentally sprayed insulation on top of hot light fixtures and then tried to put the fire out, fire spokesman Dennis Leger told 22News.

Leger added that the fire was immediately put out, but there were water and smoke damage in the worship area.
