In the village of Kravoder, Bulgaria, only the icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker remained intact in a fire in one of the houses.
The fire in the house of a local teacher, Natalya Todorova, occurred on March 25. Due to the strong wind and several more fires in the area which it caused, firefighters arrived in Kravoder more than an hour late, reports Pravoslavie.ru.
The house caught fire when its owner was returning from a hospital in the nearby city of Montana.
It is noted that everything in the house was destroyed by fire, except for one small icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker.
The mayor of the local community has asked the municipal council to provide financial assistance to the woman. Her friends and relatives have already started raising funds for the construction of a new house.
