Around midnight Tuesday, a fire possibly ignited by a bolt of lightning gutted the historic Euclid Avenue Congregational Church in Cleveland. By midday, only portions of the outer walls remained of the 123-year-old stone edifice. The congregation, which will continue to meet at nearby churches, was founded by abolitionists and is committed to peace and social justice.
By Wednesday, this was all that was left of the destroyed building.
Some history here.
