Fire Destroys Buildings At Flight 93 Memorial

Yesterday afternoon, a fire destroyed three buildings at the Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, PA.  The buildings were part of a headquarters complex about two miles from the actual crash site, and included storage space for 9/11-related memorabilia and artifacts.  No one has been reported as injured.  The memorial itself and a visitors center, currently under construction, were not affected.  The cause of the fire is not yet known.

UPDATE:  From the Associated Press, a flag that had flown over the Capitol building was lost in the fire.
