Fire in Sacred Heart church on 9 April 20114/15/2011 7:04 pm

A fire did severe damage to Sacred Heart church in Wellpinit in the early afternoon of Saturday, 9 April 2011. The local fire investigators, the Fire Chief and the Tribal Chief of Police have determined that the fire was accidental.

On Wednesday, 13 April, the initial response to the fire began for the purpose of preserving the integrity of the property that survived the fire. A contractor specializing in fire damage recovery has begun the "Emergency Response" phase by removing furniture, carpeting and other materials. This initial phase is intended to eliminate any further harm that might develop from rot due to the water damage sustained when the blaze was extinguished.

There are a number of local people who presently are setting up plans for coordinating community efforts to restore the building. Further plans for recovery and restoration are pending. We will seek to establish an ordered means of bringing together local individuals, both volunteers and professional workers, with the contractors.
