Shocking watching this. Looks like the fire is out of control, the spire and roof have collapsed. Hope they can somehow save some of it. Distressing for the people of Paris.

"Officials in Paris said the fire, which started at the 850-year-old Gothic building around 7pm local time, could be linked to renovation works being carried out at the cathedral. French media reports, citing police sources, added that the fire started by accident. "

An appalling tragedy to one of the world’s great buildings. I hope we immediately pledge to provide assistance with stone masons and architectural consultancy as required once the dust has settled. I imagine there are contractors involved in the renovation feeling pretty sick right now.

Terrible news. I can't bear to watch the videos, it's just too saddening. frown

The loss of Mackintosh's Glasgow School of Art to fire was bad enough, this is even worse.

And ironically I was listening to Black's "Wonderful Life"...

This is terrible...

Just horrible news, also horrible seeing the spire collapse. I think it's the heart of Paris, I was in there a couple of years ago & climbed to the top via very narrow stone stairs about forty years ago (the first time I visited Paris).

This is beyond heartbreaking. To this day, visiting Notre Dame and spending almost a full day there was the absolute highlight of my Paris trip. I can't bear to watch either.

Tragic.

Like most of you, I've been there myself, but all the way back in the mid 90s.

I sincerely hope it doesn't burn to the ground, and that a lot of it will be salvaged -- like the stained glass windows dating back to the 1100s.

This is sad.

But as Lord Varys said last night: Nothing lasts.

Twiiter to the rescue! "Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!"
Brilliant! Much better than a garden hose used in a leisurely manner from the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Many real estate developers would disagree with you.

I just received pictures and video from my nephew who is in Paris at this moment for a bike race that was held this weekend - I think it was called the Paris Roubaix and his friend ran a marathon. He said it was unbelievable and so sad. He, his wife and baby are staying a short distance from Ile de la Cite and were caught up in the crowds that were forming. They were moved back quite a distance and watched for approximately 3 hours as it burned. To see it first hand must be surreal which he said it was. He said the weather was beautiful earlier in the day and you could see the flames almost too clearly.

I wish I could post what he sent me here but I am inept at that and besides, it's everywhere and too sad.

I hope, that it could rebuilt again.

At the last news here the 3 rose windows have held but it is still unclear how the strong heat of the fire could have damaged the stained glass Windows.

Last news : the three Rose windows are intact.

It's pretty clear the stained glass windows are gone, there's smoke and scorch marks on the outside of the structure.
