The Frenchtown Rural Fire District (FRFD) responded to the scene shortly after midnight.
Crews were able to quickly put out the flames and the fire was contained to the basement.
FRFD spokesman Mel Holtz told MTN News that the church is considered a historic structure and crews were there Monday afternoon waiting to gain access to the scene.
