    Got a news text that there was a fire. Figured it was small and contained....wow. When I turned on the TV.

    Notre Dame Cathedral burning...

    Doubt that...but who knows.
    Main spire collapsed.

    My first time to Paris, was staying in the burbs. Took the metro to the Notre Dame stop. So it was literally the first sight I saw of Paris. Was much more impressive than I had imagined.

    Horrifying. So much history going up in smoke. Looks like only the stone will be left.

    Sounds like the museum has been spared so far.

    This is kinda disheartening

    Yeah, I know, but doesn’t look too friggin stable, considering where they are.

    I know one thing, I wouldn’t be in that huge crowd gathering to watch it.

    I meant it's bananas that they're up on top of it when the spire has fallen and parts of the roof have collapsed. Don't die for a building.

    Well, 700 years is a pretty good run...

    I recommend they just raze whatever is left and put in short term rentals on the site

    With all of the staging it's likely some dumbass set it on fire torching part of the roof system.

    "The cathedral is constructed primarily of limestone — a flammable stone — and has a roof made from wood. "

    Limestone is flammable?
