Watching the spire and the rest of the building ablaze on the news, it looks a write-off to me. Awful thing to happen.

As I said, a write-off
A shard of the spire shown breaking off......

I visited Notre Dame many years ago and it was absolutely stunning. What a loss to Paris.

They say the building structure has been saved but the loss inside is irreplaceable.

Centuries of history gone in a flash. Very sad.
Mind you, big fires got at Windsor Castle back in 92, and I think the Charles Rennie Mackintosh building in Glasgow caught fire twice...
This is very upsetting ... before, I've only seen pictures of the cathedral (outside photos) ... & it is / iconic ... ... ... I've only ever been travelling through Paris to get to the South coast of France ... however ... my 1st ever experience of pitching a tent with the then husband was inside the city of Paris = Montparnasse district = it was magic
Parisians must feel it in their hearts as I would feel it in my heart about York Minster
What is it about buildings undergoing repairs that they catch fire ? ... ... ... health & safety rules compromised during restoration(s) ?
My heart felt it when the Charles Rennie MacIntosh School of Art buldings in Glasgow got it twice when undergoing repair work ? ... talk of it now is demolishing it ... = ... Gutted, no pun intended
Always been a bit fan of CRM architecture ... & ... it was on my 'To Do List' to visit Glasgow and soak all of his work / particularly any of his surviving Tea Rooms one day ... = ... good train service direct to the city from the town in which I live
A TRADJEDY FOR PARIS
