      They are reporting that they have slowed the fire enough to save the two bell towers that flank the entrance, and they have been pulling as much of the artwork from inside as possible.

      Terrible loss, but it sounds as if they have made incredible efforts to save as much as they could.

        Whatever. After seeing Garth Brooks play at Notre Dame I have to try hard to care.
        George Washington was the man who never told a lie. Richard Nixon was the man who never told the truth. Donald Trump is the man who doesn't know the difference.
        Venezuela is what happens when you have Trump without the Madison.

          That cathedral lasted for nearly seven centuries including the invasion and bombing of France by the Nazis during WWII, and it burns down now?
          Looks mighty suspicious to me.

They have a nearly unlimited water source mere feet away. The base of the fire could have been hit through the windows. I am quite sure that a few windows were already damaged by the time the fire brigade arrived.

                Of course, I do not know what they did, and not every fire can be put out with the tools at hand.
                One of the problems is that it apparently took two hours for the fire brigade to get there... and while the Seine is right there, it doesn't do much good without hoses and pumps...

                And I also heard that the fire started at the rear, in the roof area... and if so, the base of the fire may have been in the roof timbers themselves, and not further down where they could get to it through the (assumedly damaged by then) windows...

                  Last I heard they don't suspect terrorism or arson.

                  But his point is noted - that building took two hundred years to build, it lasted for over 800 years and survived two world wars, the Nazis, the French Revolution, etc.... and if it turns out it was destroyed by a mere construction / maintenance accident, it just doesn't seem like a fitting end for such a grand building.

                        Whoa, it's in Paris?
                        I was thinking Indiana, Pence country.
                        That's different.

                        Sorry, I've been busy with taxes. Not watching TV.

                          Oh, please. How could it take two hours for a fire brigade to arrive in the middle of Paris - at the most famous cathedral in all the world?

                          Gee, I hope Quasimodo got out.

                            Apparently this is what some of the interior looks like right now.

                                Must have been one of those new 5G towers they installed.
