Just happening. Cause unknown, but it may be related to renovations.

Idiot chimes in…

The steeple collapses as smoke and flames engulf the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on April 15, 2019. – A huge fire swept through the roof of the famed Notre-Dame Cathedral in central Paris on April 15, 2019, sending flames and huge clouds of grey smoke billowing into the sky. The flames and smoke plumed from the spire and roof of the gothic cathedral, visited by millions of people a year. A spokesman for the cathedral told AFP that the wooden structure supporting the roof was being gutted by the blaze.

No deaths reported. No reports of injuries either.

This is clearly a response to Trump’s stupid tweet:

Notre Dame contained what is purported to be (1) Jesus’ crown of thorns (2) nail used in crucifixion; (3) part of Jesus’ cross. Not to mention invaluable artwork, tapestry, and other artifacts.

And as night falls in Paris, they are singing psalms in the street.

French Deputy Interior Minister states that saving Notre Dame “is not certain”
