It looks bad too.
It's too bad. My mother always liked South Bend, Indiana.
Notre Dame was on fire when Lou Holtz was coach.
This is dreadful. Notre Dame is a hugely significant piece of world culture.
And yet the geek in me sees this and the first thing I think of is "This looks like a job for Superman."
The roof collapsed.
No one knows what caused the fire or how it spread so quickly.
This is a tragedy. I hope they can stop the fire before it does more damage, but the costs of fixing everything at this point are going to be astronomical.
I blame the Hunchback. Too soon?
Seriously, a terrible loss. It's been rebuilt before, though. Hopefully it will be rebuilt again. I wonder how much irreplaceable historical stuff on the inside is gone as well?
First thing I thought of was the Enterprise blowing up, “My god Bones, what have I done?” But it didn’t quite fit.
Again, I think of Star Trek when the Enterprise D was destroyed, “It won’t be the last ship to bear the name Enterprise”
Someone's getting fired.
On the brighter side, they still have the Notre Dame cathedrals at Chartres and Amiens, right?
Reports are French firefighters are actually inside the cathedral trying to save precious historical artifacts. It's looking to me like this might be construction-related.
Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me. Hopefully none of those guys lose their lives over it. Historical or not, 'stuff' isn't worth it- especially to their families.
Hopefully it can be salvaged. Beautiful building.
That’s more effort than you usually get from a bunch of cheese eating surrender monkeys.
To be fair I considered going down a similar line.
In all seriousness I do hope no one was hurt.
Apparently it is. Refurbishment/preservation work going on and something sparked a fire that got out of control.
Hopefully if it was undergoing restoration some of the artifacts inside may have been removed during the process
And disbelievers rejoice...
Not on WF, they haven't. Back under your rock, you.
Perhaps you're right. You were there during construction. How are you feeling about it?
My heart goes out to the people of France and Catholics. This is just tragedy, thankfully no one seems to have been hurt but the loss of all the art and the building itself is heartbreaking.
