The massive fire early that killed a 2-year-old and left his father seriously injured spread to a church steeple across the street and engulfed it in flames.

The fire started around 1 a.m. in a residential building on Summit Avenue and spread to two more residential buildings, according to previous reports.

High winds spread the fire to 1406 and 1408 Summit Ave.

About a half hour later, embers from the fire sparked the church steeple, which eventually collapsed, taking down power lines.
