8 April 2007: The 83 year-old St. Anne Catholic Church on Broad Street in New Castle, Indiana was destroyed by a fire yesterday morning, the day before one the holiest of Christian holidays. Preliminary indications suggest that this was an act of arson.

Firefighters were called to the church, a downtown landmark in this eastern Indiana city, at about 7:45 a.m. Saturday morning, finding the church engulfed in flames. The fire appears to have been started in the basement. When firefighters arrived, stained-glass windows were shattering and shingles were from the roof as the fire roared through the interior of the structure.

“This is a dastardly deed for a church to be criminalized on the eve of one of the holiest holidays,” State Fire Marshal Roger Johnson said.
