Finnish church burns to ground, worshipers go ahead with Easter service on ashes (VIDEO)

1 post in this topic

An 18th-century wooden church was set ablaze in Finland’s city of Ylivieska, local media report. Even though the building was reduced to ashes as a result of suspected arson, local worshipers still held an Easter service on the site.

The fire broke out in the 230-year-old church around 1630 GMT Saturday, Helsingin Sanomat reported. Residents have posted multiple pictures and videos from the scene on social media. Some of the clips captured the dramatic moment when the burning church’s belltower topples.

The arsonist accused of setting the fire was detained, local police reports as cited by the media. The man is in custody and has reportedly confessed to setting the building on fire. His motives however are still unclear.

No mention of the arsonists identity either.
This makes me angry. It's a destruction of history.
