An early morning  fire Monday destroyed the Somers Congregational United Church of Christ.  The church burned to the ground.    The fire department was originally called for smoke coming from the basement, there was no one inside the church.  There were no injuries battling the blaze.  The historic church dates to 1842 and the congregation dates to 1727.   Sunday night,  congregants jammed into the town hall auditorium across the street Monday afternoon to pray, sing and discuss the future of the church.  <object width=”420″ height=”315″><param name=”movie” value=”;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”;hl=en_US&amp;rel=0″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”420″ height=”315″ allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true”></embed></object>
