Boston: St. John's Albanian Orthodox Church Destroyed By Fire

SOUTH BOSTON – Nearly 100 firefighters responded to a five-alarm fire that ripped through St. John the Baptist Albanian Orthodox Church Wednesday morning on West Broadway in South Boston.

The fire was reported near 9:00 a.m. but fire officials on the scene said that efforts to fully put out the fire could go on into the evening. “A lot of the structure is compromised, it may have burned through the roof and we can’t totally hit the hotspots from the inside,” said Deputy Fire Chief Robert Calabrisi, adding that the roof could collapse due to the intensity of the fire.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this point.
