PAULA ZAHN, CNN ANCHOR: I am going to make a turn here. We have some breaking news to report. I take you back to that dramatic fire this morning at that historic church here in Manhattan. It is a four- alarm fire. It broke out early this morning at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Manhattan's upper west side. Its Web site actually calls it the largest cathedral in the world.

Parts of the structure are still under construction more than 100 years after the first stone was put into place. So far, no word of any injuries. One would hope at this hour of the morning, there weren't many people around the church, but we'll keep you posted and hopefully within the next hour or two give you an idea of how this fire got started in the first place.
