The Provo Tabernacle caught fire early this morning.
Ugh, my heart is just breaking. Breaking!! This beautiful, historic, gorgeous building...just gone. At 4:30am Cody woke up and said, "Jewels...the Provo Tabernacle is on fire". I sat up and said, "What? What?!". Cody's Dad was there and his Mom and sister drove over and took some pictures. Steph sent Cody some pics to his phone and he showed them to me. It's unreal.
We just sat there in the dark looking at these horrible pictures, just quiet. SO sad! My Dad has given so many talks in that building, we've attended Stake Conferences there, my Mom and brother were in 'Oliver!' that performed there...I just can't wrap my head around it. I can't believe it's gone. A huge part of history, one of the oldest building's in the state and it's gone.
It was a huge fire. It completely engulfed the building and smoke was pouring out of every window. The roof caved in around 6:00am. They're saying that it's most likely an accident and hopefully they can salvage a few pieces from it. My heart just aches, such a tragic loss.
