A devastating fire destroys a historic church building in the US metropolis of New York. Fortunately, people are not harmed. But much is irretrievably lost. The condition of a historic bell is still unclear. A huge fire largely destroyed a historic church in New York’s East Village. Recordings from TV station ABC showed flames blazing from the entire roof of the 128-year-old Middle Collegiate Church. You could also see the entire nave glowing. According to the New York Fire Department, the fire broke out around 5 a.m. on the first floor of an empty building in the neighborhood and then spread to the place of worship.

„We are deeply dismayed that our beloved shrine has burned to the ground,“ Rev. Jacqui Lewis wrote on the Church website. „We know that God does not cause such tragedy, but that He is with us now in our grief.“ What will become of the ruin is unclear. According to Lewis, the Protestant community has been celebrating its services online since March because of the coronavirus epidemic. „Unfortunately it looks very bad,“ said Rev. Amanda Ashcraft the ABC broadcaster. „The altar is badly damaged, our painted Tiffany windows are lost.“ Almost 200 firefighters were on duty. It took them more than three hours to get the flames under control. Four helpers suffered minor injuries. The cause of the fire was initially unknown. The Middle Collegiate Church has around 1,300 members. The roots of the community go back to the early 17th century. It is one of the oldest in America. In its tower hangs the New York Liberty Bell, which, according to the Church, rang on the birth of the nation in 1776. In addition, the bell has struck the inauguration and death of every US president. It is currently unclear whether she survived the fire.
