Holy Father Patrick, thank you for your help!

Fires in churches and cathedrals are notoriously difficult to fight, given the lack of interior partitions and exposed structural members. This current fire seems no different.

The building is at least partially sprinklered, and it is unusual for fire to destroy a building provided adequate sprinkler protection. However, there has been some damage to the roof and attic area, and I also wonder if the engineering criteria for the sprinkler protection may have been adequate.....I'll have to see the fire report to find out, I guess...

Lord have mercy! Let us hope no one is injured!

Fire Breaks Out At Historic Holy Name Cathedral

An extra-alarm fire broke out early this morning at the historic Holy Name Cathedral, and flames were seen shooting through the roof.

The fire broke out around 5:30 a.m. at the cathedral at 735 N. State St., which just reopened in November after a series of renovations. The cathedral is a city landmark and the seat of the Chicago Archdiocese....

Lord have mercy. Perhaps we should move this to the prayer forum.

OK! If we get any discussion regarding the fire engineering of the structure, the tactics used on the fireground, similarities to other cathedral fires (such as one in Britain a few years ago that also grew into the attic/roof area), etc we'll start another thread.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
