Fire damages Massachusetts church after Easter services

A fire broke out at a church in Massachusetts shortly after the Easter service, with more than 100 firefighters working to save the 114-year-old building.

The fire broke out around 5:30 p.m. Sunday Lutheran Faith Church in Cambridge. Firefighters from 18 engine companies and eight ladder companies responded, acting fire chief Tom Cahill said.

Part of the roof collapsed, but the main structure and steeple still stood. Video of the multi-alarm fire showed heavy smoke from the steeple.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire was determined.

It was not immediately clear when the last services in the church had ended.

Rev. Robin Lutjohann, the church’s pastor, said the building was empty at the time. He called fire “heartbreaking”.

“It’s a place that is loved by the community,” Lutjohann told WHDH-TV. “There’s a sign in front of the building, a banner that we’ve put up there since COVID during the Easter season that says ‘We will rise.’ And we will.”
