Churches are of an outstanding significance among our historic buildings. Any fire occurred at the roof structure of churches can have serious consequences, as these are located at great heights, thus falling partially or entirely outside the operational area of the firefighters’ mechanical telescopic ladders or aerial platforms. If the firefighters arriving first are confronted with an extended fire, little chances remain that the blaze will be extinguished. In the present article, we will present three case studies of fire events at roof structures of churches and the conclusions that can be deduced from these.
