The fire’s cause is under investigation, according to a Facebook post by the volunteer fire association that responded.“We give thanks to God that no one was injured,” the diocese said in a Facebook post about Singh’s home. “We thank you for your prayers and support and invite you to give him the space needed to work through all that’s ahead.”Episcopal News Service messaged a diocesan spokesperson seeking further information and was waiting for a response when this story was posted. The story will be updated when more is known.
