If it was the Telco's equipment then I suspect this is going to cause quite a few problems with other churches and buildings refusing to house the equipment.

Insurance is one thing, but this is a piece of history that burned down, no money can replace that.

Is it just me or is the title slightly accusatory? Like it's the churches fault for burning down. I might need a nap.

I suspect this is one of the telco's fault. But who will take the blame and rebuild?

Say a network provider, their equipment, is the cause I wonder what the insurance will have to say... I have seen these agreements and who may or may not be responsible.

Doesn’t look like the fire started in the tower (where I would presume the telco equipment to be).

Sad, looks like a historic piece of architecture. As a lover of history this hurts :(

I could be wrong but I doubt all the equipment was located in the tower, the antennas yes.

The internal equipment is usually fairly close to the antenna, if an external box is also used it wouldn’t be in the church, having said that, all the church steeple antenna systems I have seen are a compact design with all the equipment situated in the tower/steeple.

Ok I've never seen a steeple installation, just normal buildings and exchanges.
