Fifty years ago, a devastating fire raged through Our Lady of Sacred Heart Church, destroying the meeting place of a 112-year-old religious community.
About 100 firefighters finally brought the church fire under control as temperatures hovered around 0 degrees. But the next morning, only smoldering ruins remained. Stone walls had a layer of ice. The only other thing still standing was the 100-foot high bell tower.
Kelly and Christina talk about this fire, its mysterious cause and how the community today seeks to prevent disasters like this one from happening again.
