Raging fire destroys historic New York City church

A historic church in New York City was destroyed in a raging fire just hours after its Orthodox worshipers celebrated Easter.

Yesterday the 1th of May happened to be Easter Sunday for the Orthodox Christians around the world. Just few hours after catching Holy Ghost fire at the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral St. Sava in Manhattan, a literal fire broke out in the church sending plumes of smoke billowing into the city's skyline. It started at 7 p.m. Sunday
The fire was largely extinguished three hours later, but firefighters had to beat back small pockets of flames. Authorities didn't disclose the cause of the fire, which completely destroyed the church's roof.
Fire officials said the church's caretaker ran inside the Gothic Revival style building to try to put out the blaze but suffered minor smoke inhalation and had to be rescued.
Jesus will help his Bride.
