Pray for our first responders and everyone on the scene. And federal authorities had better investigate this. If this was a fire at a mosque on a holy day, the feds would have already had a press conference about their hate crime investigation.

    Yes, needs good investigation. Per wikip., St.Sava is the patron saint of Serbia. In 1594 uprising against the Ottomans, the Serbs fought under flags of Sava’s portrait. In retaliation, the Ottomans burned his remains. The St. Sava church in Belgrade is one of the largest churches in the world.
