CARDINGTON, Ohio (AP) --A priest from one Ohio county's only Roman Catholic church says parishioners will move services to a nearby church for the start of the Christmas season after a fire destroyed their decades-old building.

Authorities in Morrow County say the fire Thanksgiving morning destroyed Sacred Hearts Church in Cardington.

No cause was immediately determined. The Mount Gilead fire chief says a priest locked the church Wednesday night and there was no indication anyone was inside when the blaze started.

The Rev. John Bakle says that parishioners remain positive despite the Thanksgiving Day loss. He says the congregation of 200 families will have services Sunday at a Methodist church in Mount Gilead.
