Notre Dame is burning !
 
The spire over the alter just fell. My archaeologist heart breaks.

Oh no! I had to check if this was real news, and it was! Looks awful!


Sure, God does not live in buildings made by hands, but still...

Oh no! :cry

I just read The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Very dark piece of literature but the love for that building just oozed from the book.

I just heard from a co-worker. Can't believe it.

Heartbreaking! So glad it was closing for the day and they were able to get everyone out.

In the time it took to take dd to work, the windows either blew out or melted :cry I was so hoping they would survive.

Notre-Dame Cathedral@CathedraleNotre on Twitter is showing interior shots!!! Lots saved!

Apparently they were about to start Mass when the fire started (ended tours, but not services). Apparently the police had to come and speak directly to the priest in order to get everyone out. I joked that I could see the priest saying "Blessing in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Now everyone grab a valuable piece of art and exit in an orderly fashion, depositing your saved item with police across the street."
