Investigations are continuing into the cause of a fire which destroyed a Mathoura church hall on Thursday.
Deniliquin police said they didn’t believe the fire was suspicious but investigations would continue until the cause was determined.
‘‘It’s an old building with old wiring,’’ Inspector Ben Granger said.
‘‘The fire started on the eastern side of the building where there was an old air-conditioning unit, but no determinations have been made at this stage.’’
The fire on Thursday night razed part of the St Andrews Church hall to the ground.
Fire crews were able to bring the blaze under control about 11pm.
