Within hours of the Historic Preservation Board unanimously designating the Black Bottom House of Prayer as a historical landmark, the roof collapsed atop the seats and the stage inside. At least one person was in danger of being hurt, but Orlando firefighters arrived in time to save them.
The designation appeared to come at just the right time, as one of the Orlando Commissioners had this to say following the collapse:
In this unfortunate incident, we are very sensitive that this is a historic landmark here in historic Paramore, and [we want] to preserve what we can to hopefully continue the process of rebuilding again.
In an accident of this magnitude, we’re just thankful no one was injured.
