A second person has died following a fire at St. Paul’s By-The-Sea Episcopal Church this morning in Ocean City.

The Rev. David Dingwall died as a result of his injures Tuesday afternoon, according to the Rev. Canon Heather Cook of the Episcopal Diocese in Easton.

The Episcopal Diocese said the fire began after a person on fire ran into the church. Authorities would not confirm that.

How horrible. May the Rev Dingwall (and the other deceased person) rest in peace, and rise in glory.
