Prague wooden church fire blamed on technical fault or human error

Fire service investigators say a blaze at a wooden church in Prague was probably caused by either a technical fault or human error. The Church of St. Michael in the city’s Kinský Gardens park was burnt to a cinder in Wednesday’s fire. It was originally built in Carpathian Ruthenia before being disassembled and transported to Prague in 1929.

The fire service said the cause of the blaze should be established by Friday.
