The three-story, 15,000-square-foot Spanish baroque building was built in 1926 and cost $84,000 to build – an astronomical amount at that time.. It initially housed the Westminster Presbyterian Church.

One man claiming to be an eyewitness to Wednesday’s fire told local tv station WGNO that he saw a man running from the home.

“I was walking around the corner with my dog, Ziggy Smalls, and I saw a lot of smoke coming out,” August Arthur told WGNO. “My neighbor around the corner, she saw a dude jump over the fence on the backside of Harmony and Eighth.”



Luckily there were no injuries, the television station reported.
