NY1 VIDEO: As NY1 revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Rebecca Spitz's August 28, 1998 coverage of when a construction worker inside the Central Synagogue on the Upper East Side accidentally started a fire, which quickly grew to a five-alarm blaze.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: After a long renovation, the congregation of the Central Synagogue restored their worship space completely with a new roof, plasterwork, gilding, and ornate tiling. The synagogue was consecrated and re-opened three years after the fire in September of 2001.
