Rioting protesters set the historic St. John’s Church near the White House in Washington, D.C. on fire as the US faces another day of unrest.

Fox News’ Kevin Corke reported on the incident:

“Unfortunately, I can add just a moment it does appear that St. John’s Church is on fire, the Parish office."

“We went downstairs, and it is on fire.”

Corke then revealed a raging fire burning inside the church.

Police said the fire was intentionally set at the Church, which started in the basement.

The fire department also tweeted that there was a fire in the basement and that it was being extinguished.

“This is awful,” Corke continued.
