Electrical Short Destroyed St. Theresa’s Church in Edcouch TX

EDCOUCH, TEXAS – Investigators concluded the fire that destroyed an Edcouch church was an accident. The cause was determined as an electrical short. St. Theresa’s Church was under renovation at the time.

Father Ernesto Medina is still holding mass for congregation members in the church hall. Father Medina says rebuilding hasn’t started yet but plans are underway. Insurance will cover most of the cost but church members are helping too. Fundraisers like bingo night are helping church goers raise money.

Engineers are already getting things ready. He still doesn’t know when rebuilding will start but he’s confident that should be soon.
