Stained glass windows from a former church in Cambridge,  Mass., now to be torn down as the result of a fire, will be transferred to a housing complex damaged by the same fire and needing new windows.  In the former church, quoting from the newspaper:

'The center of the sanctuary was 40 feet high and lit by large arched windows at a clear story level,' according to the [Cambridge Historical Commission's] description of the former church.

Boston Globe, March 3, 2017, page B2, "A window on life after a fire," col. 3.

Also in the Globe online.  I don't know whether this error is the Globe's or the Cambridge Historical Commission's.
