BATON ROUGE - Church members say it will take at least six months to repair their church after flames ripped through St. Anthony Catholic Church apartment building Sunday night.

Officials say the fire started on the second floor of the building on Choctaw Dr. near Tecumseh St.

Investigators aren't sure what started the fire but they estimate the damage to cost the church $300,000.

Three units were destroyed and the eight men who lived inside are now homeless, looking for a place to live.

No injuries were reported, however one person had to jump to safety from a second-floor window.

Stephanie Ryan will have an update tonight on News 2 at 5 and 6.
