Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago faces roof repairs once again, this time from a three-alarm fire that broke out in the church attic in the morning hours of Feb. 4. Almost a year ago to the day, roof problems eventually forced the main building to close for several months for repairs. This gallery shows the problems at the prominent cathedral over the last year culminating with the recent fire.
Firefighters punched a hole in the attic of the cathedral to access the flames. Freezing weather turned excess water to ice on the roof and inside the cathedral.
