Wow that's horrible :/ I wonder how it started
Probably a stupid plumber soldering a joint on a copper pipe. I had a plumbing leak in a copper pipe at my last home. I had a plumber come and "fix" the leak. Half hour after the plumber left, and just as we were about to leave the house, my wife saw that there was smoke coming out from under the cabinet where the sink is. The dumbass set the wall behind the cabinet on fire. If she hadn't noticed, the fire department said our whole house would have burned down. The Fire department tore my whole kitchen wall and cabinets apart getting to all of the fire. What a freakin' mess. Insurance covered the damage but when they went after this bonded and insured plumbing company, he filed for bankruptcy. He never paid a dime in damages.

It is sad. I was just there last June with the family and got to see a lot of the historical artifacts and unique displays on the back side. It was weird at the time but I was thinking this stuffs should be in a modern museum because what if there's a fire. The spire that collapsed is above the altar. Even attended a mass - not Catholic but the wife is - and it was definitely a bigger deal than the typical Sunday mass. All gone and it is sad. Sure it can be rebuilt but can't be replaced.

make sure you carry lots of spare change...restuarants charge to use their toilets.

Funnily enough there were renovations going on and they suspect those. Not sure if it was a plumber though!

As the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris burned Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted that France should use “flying water tankers” to put out the blaze as firefighters fought to save one of the country’s most iconic landmarks.

If they do that, they will collapse the remaining structure.
What a moron
