A two-alarm fire broke out at a Hockessin church Tuesday morning, November 16, 2021.

Hockessin firefighters were called to the Korean United Methodist Church off of Loveville Road just before 11 a.m. for an automatic fire alarm, but they upgraded the call to a working alarm upon their arrival.

Firefighters found smoky conditions inside as they searched for the seat of the fire, and checked for extension.
