LAKEWOOD (VINnews) — An early-morning fire devastated a Lakewood Yeshiva, leaving the Sefer Torah and the building totally destroyed.

The fire started at approximately 3:00AM Sunday morning at Yeshiva Chayei Olam on Faraday. The fire was in advanced state by the time the Fire Department arrived on scene. The fire raged for approximately an hour and a half before being brought under control.

The Sefer Torah had been inside a safe, which fell through the floor when the building collapsed., leaving its contents vulnerable. By the time the Sefer Torah was removed, it was unfortunately burned and destroyed.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the fire.
