Maywood : Faulty Wiring Blamed for $325,000 Fire at Church

April 29, 1993

A Roman Catholic church was heavily damaged in an early morning fire ignited by faulty electrical wiring in the church office, a fire investigator said Wednesday.

Praise Chapel Catholic Church sustained about $325,000 in damage to its structure and contents after a 25-foot extension cord caught fire Tuesday about 3 a.m., said Capt. William Franklin of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The fire spread to the interior of the church and destroyed its ceiling.
