Firefighters reckon they might not be able to put the fire out, building could go down.

Can you imagine Paris without the ND?

Yes. Nobody has died. Much worse happens daily.

I've just read that a Paris fire official has said that they've managed to save and preserve the main structure. Great news, in the context of the circumstances, if so. Via [www.theguardian.com]

'Notre-Dame’s main structure has been “saved and preserved”, a Paris fire official has announced.

“We can consider that the two towers of the north belfry Notre-Dame have been saved,” he tells BFMTV. “The structure of Our Lady is saved as a whole.”

Difference is, Paris would be worse off without the ND.

The conspiracy theorists will be out in force, with what is going on in France at the moment.

Absolutely awful.A Paris icon,essentially gone. There have been many similar events and I am sure it can be fixed, given time and money.
They say I got brains but they ain't doin' me much good.

Strange. I was really shocked to hear this on the radio. These buildings sort of belong to us all.
Spot on newblue, never forget when my wife and few of her mates were all off to the ritz for afternoon tea. All of them from the humblest of backgrounds smethwick, Winson green etc, when they got there the front doors had been smashed in by rioters.
I forget what the riot was about but it was the time the son of a pink floyd member vandalised the cenotaph, fcukin imbecile posh boy!
I was gutted for all these ladies! You are dead right we feel that those wonderful buildings somehow belong to us!

This is similar to how I felt when Conservative Party HQ got attacked by students a few years ago 😔
