The police and fire service In Samoa are investigating the cause of a fire which destroyed the two storey centre for the Samoa Independent Seventh Day Adventist Church on Wednesday.
Fire fighters were unable to save the multimillion dollar building in Apia. However they were able to contain the fire from spreading to nearby businesses in town and family homes.
Local reports say the fire may have started from a mosquito coil used by a night guard man.
However a fire senior officer says the real cause should be found after their inquiries.
