FDC Pfeiffer was here, not sure where he went.

As of 4PM flame on the left side of the building is going pretty good

I guess the CAD picked Box 270 Bushwick & McKibbin rather than 702 White & Seigel just East of the Church Fire....... Box 702 5-15-62 LODD FF John Cannon ENG*237....Continued Rest In Peace.
And with a 10-66 given too. You’re probably right.

Massive job back in early 1991 of Bogart-Mckibben-White-Borum. Entire black was interconnected warehouses, three of the 4 burnt down with one still standing today. Now it’s a concrete plant.

It’s actually shocking the number instances that churches have major fires on Easter. For example last year a fire destroyed a historic church in Cambridge MA on Easter (a fire that is still being investigated by the FBI), and as everyone likely remembers - the St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church near the flatiron that burned to the ground before Easter service in 2016.

My 2 cents is that it’s likely a nasty mix of arson and unattended candles.
