Huge Fire at Notre Dame in Paris

This is bad. Looks to be a total loss. What a shame.

Gotta believe it will all need to be razed. Unless this is confined to just one end of the building. Looks pretty bad, though.

It’s a horrible shame, Notre Dame is an iconic French landmark and will be a devastating loss.

So glad I went to see it again when I was there 2 weeks ago now. Hard to imagine something like this happening. Probably good I can't visit anymore... last time I was in Notre Dame the pope died.

What an incredible shame for such an iconic landmark to be destroyed.

I think a lot of artwork inside will also be destroyed.

Unbelievable that these things happen in this technologically advanced age.

I suspect the French will do all they can to preserve and restore what is left, hopefully they have enough to work with. My wife and I were there on our honeymoon, spectacular cathedral and beautiful views from the towers.

They just reported the towers were safe but looks like the roof and spire will need heavy re-building. It's a shame for an icon of its nature to suffer like this.

I'd say so, considering they both collapsed.

Trump just tweeted if France would have checked with him on the state of disrepair, he could have saved it.

Ummm, yeah, that didn't happen.

The Church did, however, tweet that they were able to save all of the artifacts in the church, including the thorn crown.
