Naturists are devastated after a suspicious fire destroyed an old church on their Aparima, Southland, property.
Fire Service communications shift manager Brent Dunn said the church, about 60km west of Invercargill, was ‘‘well ablaze’’ when firefighters arrived on the scene.
The church, owned by the Southern Naturally naturist club, was destroyed by the blaze.
Mr Dunne said the fire was being treated as suspicious and investigators were looking into the cause.
