Fire Destroys Landmark Chicago Church


Firefighters battle a blaze at Pilgrim Baptist Church in Chicago on Friday, Jan. 6, 2006

CHICAGO - The architecture was majestic, the gospel choir was inspiring and services at the Pilgrim Baptist Church were so popular that worshippers in the 1930s and '40s had to show up an hour early to find a seat.
