KANSAS CITY, Mo. — UPDATE | The ATF says it has completed a preliminary investigation and does not believe foul play to be the cause of the fire.

EARLIER | Kansas City's ATF office is investigating an overnight fire at a Grandview church near 71 Highway and Main Street.

ATF investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire at Apostolic Church that caused "significant damage."

The investigation comes as there is a congressional mandate to investigate fires at houses of worship, according to the ATF.

Grandview Fire Department firefighters were called to the building around 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

No one was inside the church at the time of the fire, and no one was hurt.
