St. Louis temple appears to be on fire
In June of 1997, the St. Louis, Missouri temple was dedicated. On Sunday, June 1, 1997 at about 10:30pm fire trucks and other police vehicles quickly arrive at the temple after receiving several calls from people driving by the temple that claimed that the temples was on fire. The callers stated that they saw flames shooting from the top of the temple.
Members of course explained the flames as “spiritual fire”. Several other explanations have been offered: air vents located on the roof, steam coming off the temple, nighttime lights, humidity and steam pipes.
Similar sightings of fire coming off temples have been made for the Kirtland temple dedication, the Nauvoo temple, and the Salt Lake temple.
