NEW YORK — Firefighters are battling a huge fire at a historic church in New York City.

Authorities say no serious juries have been reported in the blaze that broke out early Sunday evening at the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava in Manhattan.

Parts of the roof collapsed and smoke billowed from the Gothic Revival style building.

The fire broke out on the same day Orthodox Christians around the world celebrated Easter. The church website listed services that morning and an Easter luncheon at 1 p.m.

A church priest, Father Djokan Majstorovic, says he felt like he was "in a nightmare" as he tried to get to the fire scene that was blocked off by firefighters.

The church was built in the early 1850s and was designated a city landmark in 1968.
