Massive Fire Ravages Manhattan Church

May 1, 2016 Updated: October 5, 2018

A large fire broke out in a church on 25th Street and Broadway in Manhattan on May 1.

FDNY is on scene. No injuries were reported.

The church is the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava on 20 West 26th Street, though the fire appears to be on 25th Street, as the building spans the whole block.

The church, a Chelsea neighborhood landmark, was built in 1850-1855 in Neo-Gothic style. It was built for the Trinity Church parish, but was sold to the Serbian Eastern Orthodox parish in 1942.
