Josh Breuer, our man on the street when it comes to providing top notch building fire footage has done it again with this short clip of smoke pouring out of the Latvian Apostolate at Our Lady of Aglona church this afternoon.

The Latvian Catholic Church, located at 507 Broadway NW (Across the street from St. Mary's church), had recently been sold by the Catholic Diocese and was marked to be redeveloped later this year.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
