Fellowship Hall ceiling collapse.

Late Sunday April 24, 2016 the ceiling of the Fellowship Hall at the Easthampton Congregational Church, in Easthampton, Massachusetts collapsed, setting off the fire alarm and summoning the sexton.  The collapse was total, filling the room with plaster, wood lathe and insulation, leaving only the ceiling joists. The room measures 40-by-70-feet and the ceiling is 17 feet high and dates from 1855 approximately. The insurance adjusters and engineers are performing their inspection
