An early morning fire broke out at about 5:30 a.m. at Holy Name Cathedral at 735 North State Street with fire reported through the roof by 5:50 a.m. The fire was seated in the cockloft or attic — a space above automatic sprinklers where recent roof work was ongoing. A 2-11 extra alarm was requested at about 6:00 a.m. and a 3-11 extra alarm was called at about 6:50 a.m. At the height of the fire fighting operations, fire was showing through the roof from three locations. Firefighters are being commended for an excellent stop of a fire that had the potential to be devastating for the Catholic church. The fire, which was fought in near zero temperatures with 14 mph winds (Weather Underground: 2/4/2009), was declared under control about 7:30 a.m. Firefighters are remaining on the scene to check for hot spots throughout the cockloft.
