PROVO — Smoke billows from the Provo Tabernacle as firefighters continue to work on a four-alarm fire that gutted the historic building.

Authorities say a security guard noticed the fire at 100 S. University Ave. and alerted them at 2:43 a.m. Provo Fire Marshal and Battalion Chief Lynn Scofield told KSL when firefighters arrived, heavy smoke was pouring from the upper levels. Crews considered an offensive approach but when they tried to enter the building they determined it wasn’t safe. They have been fighting it defensively from the outside ever since.

The roof collapsed around 6 a.m. and Scofield said parts of some walls have come down. Our crews on the scene said smoke has poured from every window and door in the building.
