There were no reports of injuries at the Shrine of Christ the King Church at 64th Street and Woodlawn Avenue, according to fire officials.

The fire broke out around 6 a.m. and was raised to a 3-11 alarm.

The church, formerly known as St. Gelasius, was built by the Calced Carmelite Order, which established a shrine to St. Thérèse of Lisieux, according to the church’s website.”
