CLEVELAND (AP) — A fire has destroyed a 103-year-old Masonic temple in Cleveland, and authorities have ruled it was arson.
The brick, four-story building was left in ruins by the fire Wednesday night.
The building hasn't been used for gatherings in years because of unsafe conditions but was a storage site for documents, artifacts and paintings.
It has been owned since 1954 by Prince Hall, a black fraternal order whose members include former Cleveland Congressman Louis Stokes.
