St Elias the Prophet Church destroyed - Three Brampton Churches burned

A raging inferno earlier today completely destroyed St. Elias the Prophet Church in Brampton, Ontario this morning, northwest of Toronto. Police say that arson is not suspected. In October 2012, Archangel Michael and St. Tekla Coptic Orthodox Church suffered over $100,000.00 damage when a molotov cocktail was thrown through a window.  In May of 2012, St. Jerome's Catholic Church was hit by a pipe bomb.


One city, three churches?

Firefighters were called to St. Jerome's Parish, a Roman Catholic church on Chinguacousy Road, just north of Steeles Avenue, at about 5 a.m. after a fire hit the building. Police now suspect that the fire may have been caused by a pipe bomb.

At least the Copts and Ukrainians know how to build one.
