Dramatic scene at the Mount

Lightning struck the bell tower of Immaculate Conception chapel at the Mount last night. Several hours later, with the help of 20 firetrucks and 82 brave fire-fighters, the blaze was contained. Thankfully, the damage does not seem to have extended beyond the bell tower, to the interior of the newly renovated chapel. Praise God!
