On the night of April 18, 2017, the Catholic Church in Siberian Belostok was burned. The wooden building was built by Polish voluntary settlers in 1908.
The fire erupted around 4am. The fire brigade appeared at 4:25. The fire was extinguished at 6:55. The belfry was held almost to the end. Finally, the building burned down completely. Only the brick foundations were left. At the place of fire were found fragments of a bell with the inscription "Virgin Mary" and pieces a silver cross.
Causes of fire are not known. Firefighters suggest two variants: electric shock or arson as a hiding the signs of thievery. There were only three valuable things in the church: the icon of St.Anthony of Padua from the eighteenth century, silver chalice and cross.
