Harrisburg, PA

November 21, 1995

The Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church at Sixth and Herr streets, was destroyed by arson early on the morning of November 21, 1995. A burglar, apparently angry because he couldn't open an empty safe, used cans of Sterno to start a blaze in the hallway that soon consumed the 115-year-old church and caused an estimated $1.5 million damage.
