Seminary To Rebuild Chapel Currently Under ATF Investigation

The dean of the Virginia Theological Seminary is vowing to rebuild the chapel that was gutted by fire last week.

Reverend Ian Markham says the seminary has started collecting donations to rebuild.

The fire, which caused extensive damage to the 129-year-old chapel on Seminary Road in Alexandria, is under investigation by the ATF. The ATF probe is standard for all church fires in the United States.

Markham says some stained-glass windows appear to have survived the fire, but he adds they really don't know what kind of shape those windows are in, or what remains of the chapel's interior.

Markham says they're grieving but also thinking about worship without their chapel in the days ahead.
