Overnight fire at Grace Episcopal Church near Syracuse University

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Cleaning crews are working feverishly to remove soot from the sanctuary of Grace Episcopal Church, in Syracuse, after a late-night fire destroyed the kitchen there.

"I'm still at a loss," Rector Johanna Marcure said this afternoon. "But I can still feel God working. There's much to be grateful in the midst of this. The structure of the building is sound."

Marcure is determined to have 9:30 a.m. service Sunday in the sanctuary, despite major smoke damage from the 10 p.m. fire.
