Blackened roof beams hovered like a skeleton above the brick walls of the Lancaster County Courthouse on Tuesday.
The beams and a few slate shingles are all that’s left of the roof of the historic building, built in 1828.
The courtroom was set on fire early Monday morning by an arsonist. The building’s original judge’s bench is a charred shell.
Water dripped from the ceiling of the courtroom and sunlight shone on burned case files and stacks of arrest warrants on Tuesday afternoon.
