Fire ravaged historical church in the Philippines

The Saint Vincent Ferrier Church in Sagay City, on the island of Negros, Philippines, was damaged by a fire on the 9th of July, according to reports in the Manilla Times.

The fire destroyed the lower right side of the church that was full of old materials. According to firefighters, the ceiling was over a century old. The Catholic Church was built in the 1860s by the Augustin Récollets Brothers.

According to the parish, the fire was accidental and may have been caused by the sound system left in the powered-on state.
