Fire in Pagnano Church

Country: Italy

Date of incident: May 30, 2024

On May 30, a fire broke out in the church of San Giorgio in Pagnano. Fortunately, the damage is minimal, since the fire which had started from a wooden candle holder was immediately extinguished. While the cause of the fire is currently unknown the priest suspects that someone had deliberately started the fire, since the candle holder was only used to store unlit candles and it was empty. Also, no signs of melted wax were found.

This is not the first incident in this church. Recently, there have been serious acts of vandalism as well as thefts.
