The Jan Hus house in the Swiss city of Konstanz, where the medieval Czech religious reformer and philosopher was allegedly jailed before being sentenced to death at the stake for heresy in 1415, narrowly escaped fire that broke out in the street on Thursday morning, according to the Swiss news-website see-online.info. The fire destroyed two other historic houses and severely damaged several others. The Hus house now houses a small museum dedicated to the life and deeds of the Czech reformer.
