Crap, I should have put this in 'Europe'.

That looks expensive

BBC report on the fire

Awful. Really terrible.

xbod72 - 15 Apr 2019 18:42:07 (#6 of 918)

It's consuming a large spire. Shit.

Will the rose window be saved?

From wiki...

  • 8 September 2016: Notre Dame Cathedral bombing attempt. Arrests made after an explosives-filled car was discovered parked alongside the cathedral.
  • 10 February 2017 Police arrested four people in Montpellier, France, including a 16-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man already known by authorities to have ties to extremist Islamist organizations, on charges of plotting to travel to Paris and attack the cathedral.[33]

Looks devastating. A real shame.

They think it has something to do with renovations that were happening now.

No way is that roof going to stay up. It’s completely engulfed in flames.

Will the rose window be saved?

Oh fuck, I do hope so.

saskia - 15 Apr 2019 18:49:54 (#14 of 918)

Frightening and very sad.

"Macron cancels planned address to the nation" - BBC caption.

The spire just collapsed into the church.

YorenInTheNorth - 15 Apr 2019 18:52:47 (#17 of 918)

The spire is gone, the roof is done for and the fire looks fierce.

Terrible.

The fire is being blown towards the front, where the rose window is. Difficult to see how anything is going to survive this, the flames are immense.

xbod72 - 15 Apr 2019 18:54:35 (#20 of 918)

Took 200 years to build.
