BURLINGTON ó Officials with a Burlington church say the removal of a fire-damaged steeple isnít expected to begin until later in the week.
The removal of the potentially dangerous loose slate tiles on the landmark church was ongoing Monday.

The church was damaged last week in an early morning fire. A suspect has pleaded not guilty to arson charges.
Officials say the church can be repaired.
