WAKEFIELD, MA (CNN) – It doesn’t quite match the turning water into wine miracle, but it’s close.
First Baptist Church in this community north of Boston was gutted Wednesday by a seven-alarm fire, but a large painting of Jesus survived.
Even though 150-year-old church was damaged beyond repair, the painting was virtually untouched by fire, smoke or water.
Investigators are looking into what sparked the blaze.
Witnesses reported seeing a lightning bolt shortly before the flames erupted.
