NOW: Crews battle fire at Blessed Savior Church in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It's been a busy winter for Milwaukee firefighters, and they were called out again Monday afternoon, Feb. 15.

They battled the bitter cold while fighting a fire at Blessed Savior Church at 86th and Villard.

The fire started on the second floor in an office area.

As you can imagine, the cold and snow made the response much more difficult.

"With the cold weather conditions, we got an additional engine just because we typically have issues with hydrants and water supply," said MFD Battalion Chief Schuyler Belott. "Obviously, we got a lot of snow, which creates additional challenges for us."

Two church workers told firefighters that there was no one else in the building, and that no one was hurt.

Investigators are now trying to figure out how the fire started.
