DC Fire was able to put out the fire in the church. They're also putting out the fires around the building. The scene is not yet secure, but they've got this.

Reports are coming in from multiple news sources that St. John’s Church in Washington DC, just across from the White House, has been set on fire. The house of worship has had every U.S. president since James Madison sit in it. Tonight, the riots loosely associated with the protests over George Floyd’s murder are likely responsible for the historic landmark burning.

The historic St. John’s church in Washington, DC is now on fire.
It’s 205 years old and across the street from the White House.
This is TERRORISM.

“Peaceful protestors” are burning down the 205 year old St. John’s church across from the White House
The Democrat Mayor is allowing it
Why are these thugs not being IMMEDIATELY ARRESTED?
The left is hellbent on destroying America
This has to stop.

So in our nation’s Capitol you can’t get married or hold a service at historic St. John’s Church without getting arrested, but you can burn it down.

CNN’s Brian Stelter, who ironically is the host of Reliable Sources, attempted to debunk the report before deleting his inaccurate Tweet.

The 205-year-old church has become an iconic fixture in Washington DC. Politicians from across the capital and through the centuries have called the church their home of worship. There are conflicting reports about how it is being handled by authorities currently.
The iconic St. John’s Church near the White House in Washington, D.C., is reportedly on fire as violent riots rage in the area and other major cities across the U.S.
“Unfortunately, I can add just a moment it does appear that St. John’s Church is on fire, the Parish office,” Fox News’ Kevin Corke reported live on air. “We went downstairs, and it is on fire.”
Corke then walked over to a broken in window and showed a raging fire burring inside the church.
These riots have nothing to do with George Floyd. This is about promoting an agenda that many of the participants do not even understand. They see opportunities to cause havoc and steal merchandise. Meanwhile, an iconic church burns.
