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.
One of the north side pillars faced damage from the amount of water needed to extinguished the fire, but the interior remained, for the most part, undamaged from the fire that damaged Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago the morning of Feb. 4.
