VIDEO: The remains of a synagogue in downtown Duluth are smoldering following a massive fire early Monday morning. Crews from several departments responded to the blaze at Adas Israel Congregation around 2 a.m. and it took them several hours to knock down the flames. Assistant Fire Chief Brent Consie says the building is “pretty much a total loss.” There’s been no word on what caused the fire, which remains under investigation.
