Description

TFD firefighters using aerial ladder to extinguish fire at the Thomasville Road Baptist Church in Tallahassee

Accompanying note: "BLAZE FOUGHT - City firemen battled for more than an hour to contain this fire at the Thomasville Road Baptist Church early this morning. The firemen broke through a window and climbed to the roof to prevent flames from spreading to other parts of the building. Seven fire trucks and 15 firemen were used to fight the pre-dawn blaze. About half of the roof section, center, caved in, destroying the church sanctuary."
