Tragedy in Chicago

There are news reports that there has been a serious fire at the Shrine Church of Christ the King belonging to the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest in Chicago.  It seems that the fire, which started during the night, has destroyed the roof of the church and many of the internal fittings, although the walls are still standing.

It must have been a massive blaze, as 150 firemen and 50 appliances were employed to put it out. It is thought that the cause of the fire is related to the restoration works that were going on the previous day, when volunteers were applying varnish in the choir loft.

This is the second serious fire at this church, which is the headquarters of the Institute in America.  An earlier fire occurred whilst the church was out of use, before the Institute took it over.
