St. Luke's Church Reopened Wednesday After Crane Collapse
The building was deemed safe by Fairfax County.
St. Luke's Episcopal Church reopened Wednesday afternoon after a crane collapsed on the building Tuesday morning.
The Rev. Tuck Bowerfind said the building was cleared by Fairfax County around 3 p.m. Wednesday. Bowerfind told Patch the building did not suffer any structural damage, but the steeple suffered some minor cosmetic damage.
Workers from B&M Tower Technology were at the church Tuesday morning working on a cell phone tower on the church steeple. A malfunction jostled two workers in a basket while it was in the air.
The workers sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
St. Luke's Day School was also cleared for damages, but it will reopen Tuesday due to teacher continuing education days and the President's Day holiday.
Ash Wednesday services will take place at 5.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m. at the church.
