FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF HERCULANEUM FIRE - FEBRUARY 15, 1991

The First Baptist Church of Herculaneum was destroyed by a five-alarm fire on Friday morning, February 15, 1991. Investigators from the Missouri State Fire Marshal’s Office determined that the cause of the fire to be a faulty gas furnace in the basement of the church.

The fire that began in the basement area spread to the upper level and then became a roaring inferno as it spread through the auditorium of the building. Portions of the building were built in the early 1900s, while other portions were built in the 1920s.

The fire started at approximately 2:30 a.m. and was reported to the Herculaneum Fire Department shortly before 3:00 a.m. The church pastor, who lived with his family in the parsonage, made the call to the fire department after he and his family were awakened by a loud noise. Looking out the window, the pastor noticed heavy smoke coming from the church.

The fire department arrived on the scene at 3:05 a.m. and found the building fully engulfed in flames and the roof beginning to collapse. Strong winds and subzero temperatures made controlling the fire almost impossible. In addition to the bitter cold, the formation of ice from the water being used to fight the fire also hampered firefighting operations. One Herculaneum firefighter suffered a lower back injury as he slipped on the ice.

Twelve Jefferson County fire agencies were pressed into service for manpower and additional equipment. Several tanker trucks were utilized to supply water to help control the fire. The fire burned out of control for about four hours and was brought under control by 7:00 a.m. Firefighters remained on the scene until 10:00 a.m. The church building was totally destroyed by the fire.

The parsonage, located about 25 feet from the north end of the church, suffered some melting of the vinyl siding and some broken windows. A house across the street from the church also received some minor fire damage.

Although the church building and its contents were totally destroyed, a photo of Jesus Christ in the pastor’s study miraculously escaped the fire untouched.
The fire ended the existence of the Baptist Church in Herculaneum. Eventually a new building was built in Pevely, Missouri, and is now named the First Baptist Church of Herculaneum-Pevely.
