It's pretty admirable considering they were in the middle of a mass. I'll give them that
Wow, that could have been so much worse.

Sounds like unfortunately the interior is burning now

Yeah. Hopefully the emergency services salvaged what they can

In some good news, some of the statues have apparently been taken away for restoration- so hopefully not everything will be lost.

I'm finding this really tragic- I think maybe because there's just no reason to it, it's just a very tragic accident.

Honestly what I find upsetting is that children will now only think this breathtaking structure was from a Disney film.

Indeed. I would guess it is somewhere where they would practice mass evacuations tbh, but it’s still nonetheless impressive.

A very sad event that mirrors the current state of Europe, money should be put forward to rebuild it or to make something even more grand.

Interesting the temporary scaffold is still standing after all these hours but the world trade centre collapsed in half the time.
It's a completely different structure and incident, I'm not sure how comparisons can be drawn?

Always someone who has to bring politics into everything.
Can we just not make everything political?

Quasimodo died huddled at the foot of Esmerelda's grave.

Because this is political, this is a great symbol of the west and of French culture.

Catholic Churches in France have been desecrated recently. The Church of St Sulpice in Paris was arsoned last month.

I so hope this wasn't some crazy deliberate act. It's a huge loss of one of the greatest pieces of heritage in Europe. Extremely sad.
