LORAIN, OH (WOIO) -

Demolition began at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lorain Tuesday morning. 

Crews from Independence Excavating were out earlier this month, getting the interior ready to be razed. 

The church was destroyed by arson in August. A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered by the Blue Ribbon Arson Committee for information that may help identify the suspects. If you have any pictures or information, you can call the Fire Marshal's office at (800) 589-2728. 

No one was injured in the fire. 

Demolition should take about three weeks.

The church has been serving the community for 90 years.

Members plan to rebuild.
