Black Lives Matter rioters have allegedly burned a church to the ground during another night of unrest that saw violent leftist mobs throw fireworks at cops during clashes over the death of Walter Wallace Jr.

The Vietnamese Baptist Church in Philadelphia was targeted by thugs amid the second night of riots following Wallace's death.

The church has been described as a “total loss” after being torched by BLM "protesters" on Tuesday night, according to news reports and video footage released Wednesday.

Suspects in the alleged arson attack have not been identified.

Wallace, a 27-year-old black man, was shot dead by police after he approached officers and refused to drop a knife in the street.

He was fatally shot by an officer during the confrontation with police on Monday, sparking outrage from the radical-left.

As violent riots erupted on Tuesday night, the Vietnamese Baptist Church was set ablaze.

Video shows the church's inside torched, as pieces of the walls hung in shambles.

Insulation hung from the ceiling, as floorboards were covered in debris.

“I have no idea why they attacked our church,” Pastor Philip Pham told Baptist Press.

“They burned it from the roof," he added.

"They threw flammable chemicals on the roof and [flames] burned through the roof” and the rest of the building.

Pastor Pham received a call Tuesday night from a church member whose friend had seen the flames and seven fire trucks surrounding the church, the Baptist Press reported.

He said the facility is a “total loss.”

Of primary concern to Pham were three hard drives.

Since before purchasing the building in 2005, Vietnam Baptist Church has served as something of a community center each weekday, providing help with immigration paperwork, taxes, and even marriage counseling.

Despite sporadic violence on Wednesday night, the city was calmer after the imposition of a curfew, according to Breitbart.

However, there was unrest in Washington, DC, where several officers were injured in an attack involving fireworks.

There were also other clashes between protesters and police.

The protests there were over the death of a man named Karon Hylton, who was killed on a moped during a police chase after he collided with a vehicle last Friday.

Other religious buildings have been attacked, burned, or vandalized during Black Lives Matter protests — including St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, DC, where President Donald Trump famously held up a Bible the following day.
