    This is so sad. Has anyone heard more about this?

    No more infos at this point.
    But restoration team has been saying for the past few years that the monument was in a terrible state.
    Hopefully it can be saved!!!

            Hope the hunchback made it out safe...

            Jokes aside, I hate when something like this happens to really old buildings and places. This is a historical building and some of the art in the there will irreplaceable destroyed. Hate this.

                      Wow, this is actually terrible.

                      Been in Paris around ten years ago and the Notre Dame was actually my favorite thing there.

                        Awful!


                        Bizarre thing: I played Ladyhawke's first album this morning and it has been a while, and one of the best tracks on the album is "Paris is Burning".
                        I have received many gifts from God,
                        but this is the first time I have ever received a gift from a goddess

                          I'm feeling incredibly bitter right now because I am going there next month and was really looking forward to seeing the cathedral. I saw it from a river tour years ago, but not up close.

                          Tragic; the Parisians must be devastated.

                            Terrible to lose something of such historical significance.

                            I wonder what caused it...

                              I really hope it was an accident. Strong rumours about an islamic attack.

                                Not just the Parisians.
                                It was a symbol for the whole country.
                                Terrible day.

                                      As a historian and a history teacher... I cannot express my anger enough. This saddens me beyond relief. I feel WITH the Parisians, with France. This is just horrible.

                                          I hope the structure is stable enough for it all to be restored / restaurated. This is ridiculously horrible.

                                            It's so sad, watching it on BBC news - it's burning to the ground.

                                              I think the structure is the least of its worries as a lot of fine craftsmanship and details will forever be lost. That's much more valuable than basic pillar/beam/etc. system.

                                                Awful! I went inside in 1999. You just think these historic sites will be around forever.

                                                Apparently it’s an accident due to building works that were happening inside.

                                                  I heard someone saying "nothing will be salvaged", hope it's not true.
