Historic church burns
Work to rehab a Woodlawn church that was ravaged by fire 40 years ago ignited another huge fire at the Shrine of Christ the King on Chicago's South Side.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Fundraising efforts are underway to try and help a historic South Side church rebuild.

Christ the King in the Woodlawn community was severely damaged Wednesday in a massive fire.

Investigators say spontaneous combustion in some varnished covered rags is to blame.

The church has launched a GoFundMe page for collections.
