The 125-year-old church next door to where I work burned down a ;itte over a year ago and I've had these pics on my work computer ever since. I thought you guys might be able to use them for reference when building and painting ruined burned buildings.

I purposely left these images rather large so you can see details. Click "My Gallery" at the bottom of this post to take you to five other pics.

BTW, the first pic in my gallery shows an end-loader knocking down the back wall to help with the BATF investigation. By U.S. law, all church fires must be investigated by federal authorities. After about four days of digging through the rubble, it was determined that the fire was caused by a short in the antiquated electrical system, caused by the installation of a new organ.
