Provo Tabernacle

Just found out that the Provo Tabernacle caught fire early this morning. It's so sad.
This is such a part of Provo and the history of Utah. Many people are sad to lose this building. I sure hope the fire was not started on purpose. As of now they don't know the cause.
History :
(from KSL news)
~built in 1883; took 15 years to build for the cost of $100,000
~one of the oldest buildings in the state
~listed on the U.S. National Register of Historical Places
~used for Sunday stake conferences, sometimes 2 on the same day
~used for BYU college convocation sessions in May
~used for BYU graduation in August
~Community interfaith and patriotic servies held there
~Communicty concerts and performances held there
