On this day, four years ago on April 11th, 2014 firefighters battled a devastating fire of the Aurora United Church that was located at the corner of Yonge and Tyler Street downtown Aurora. It was an emotional day for the people of Aurora.
On this day I was out of town and I only saw United Church burning from far away. I saw the dark smoke all the way from Jane Street in the King Township. I did arrive on the scene later in the evening when a thick smoke was contained, but the church was still burning on the inside. As firefighters battled a blaze at Aurora United Church many local residents that day gathered to watch in disbelief and shock as the Aurora landmark on Yonge Street burned. The church building after the fire was determined to be unsafe and by the end of the month the structure was demolished.
Today, four years later the church is going to be rebuild and it will be something more, it will serve the retirement community as well. The new church building will have a retirement centre at the back of the property.
