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.
KDLH reports that one firefighter was hospitalized and released in connection to the fire.
According to the synagogue’s website, Adas Israel Congregation is an Orthodox/High Conservative Jewish congregation with a membership of 75 people.
Construction of the building was completed in 1902.
