Description of Work
South Bend, IN- Holy Cross Parish experienced a fire in their sanctuary during the evening hours that caused substantial soot and smoke damage throughout the entire building only 10 days before Christmas.
First Response quickly dispatched crews to work through the weekend to help ensure Holy Cross could proceed with their regularly scheduled Christmas services. First Response set equipment to help dry the structure and to remove the smoke odor. Cleaning crews removed all soot and scrubbed all the affected areas throughout the entire church.
Holy Cross was back open and operational three days before Christmas which allowed them to proceed with their regularly scheduled Christmas services.
