A church at Columbia Avenue and South Orange Street in Turlock was destroyed by fire early Friday morning. The American Red Cross Disaster Action Team volunteers were requested to provide canteening services to the team of firefighters.

The fire at Equip Church was called in at 4:38 a.m. and portions of the 7,000-square-foot basement still were burning at 10:30 a.m., the Turlock Fire Department reported.
