Century-old church burns down in fire
A fire destroyed one of China’s oldest cathedrals at dawn Monday in east China, with no casualties reported, local firefighting authorities said.
The fire broke out at 12:50 am in the Jiangbei Cathedral, in Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province. The gothic cathedral was built by Zhejiang Catholic Parish in 1872.
More than 50 firefighters spent two hours putting out the flames but only the frame of the main building survived, according to the firefighting division under the city’s public security department.
"The inside of the building is totally destroyed. It’s a great loss. The church is such a beautiful building," a firefighter told Xinhua.
Fortunately, the bell tower and ancillary buildings were unscathed thanks to the timely actions of the firefighters.
One staff member at the church who was staying in the building overnight said the fire first started at the altar, but he did not know how it began.
Further investigation is underway.
The cultural relic preservation department is assessing the damages and will propose a repair plan soon, local government said.
The church, a landmark of Ningbo, is a key cultural relic under state-level protection for its great historical and architectural value.
Many netizens expressed their sadness and regret online.
“I still remember the night scenery of that church. And I have thought of praying inside. Unexpectedly, that night was the last time I saw it. The next time I will see a repaired church.” @baoxiaoyi
“Please investigate the truth. I hope to see it rebuilt!” @meilinxiaorong
“I could never see an original cathedral like this any more. Even after the repair, it cannot be the same.” @jingshimishi
