:eek: horrible, it looks like a massive fire. Hopefully the interior will somewhat survive.

Oh my. Even as an atheist, I am heartbroken. Besides Eiffel Tower and Louvre, this is Paris. More than over 800 years of culture being a victim of the flames and they still have no clue how to fight it.

it's like Cologne Cathedral being on fire. Can't even imagine it. France and Paris, stay strong.

Now this is a point where EU has to work hand in hand to get this rebuilt. This is all of our heritage. I hope the 2 bell towers won't collapse.

A piece of History is partly destroyed so far. :[

They're saving some pieces of art from inside, it must be a Hell in there.

With the spire directly having collapsed over the altar, I don't think there is much to be saved. And though I am a staunch opponent of EU, I believe that all of our countries have to stand together to rebuild it. It's not just a Parisian or French landmark, it's a European one. Culturally and historically.

It is still not confirmed whether the vaultings have collapsed or not. I guess there would be some info if they did. So there is still chance the interior will survive without huge destruction (apart from getting soaked in water I suppose).
It really is an unimaginable loss though.

Absolutely horrific! My heart skipped a beat when I saw the news. All that history being destroyed, it's just... :sad:

Even rebuild it can't be original anymore.

If the bell towers survive maybe they'll find enough money to rebuild it. Obviously the entire interior & 800 years of history is gone. The renovation crew will be shipped to fuckin' Mars if this will be blamed on them (very possible).
