Why is it when a Church burns only the steeple remains standing?


Have you ever noticed that when a church burns the steeple remains standing. When there is a tornado the steeple remains standing. Through all types of weather, when the building collapses the steeple still remains standing. What is your explanation?

    Interesting. I never thought about that. But wouldn't they use all of the same materials. All of the same wood? Etc.?

    I remember reading that during WW2 bombing raids churches and cathedrals were completely destroyed, yet sometimes just the steeple remained standing. I'm sure that gave people some comfort at the time.
