    Notre-Dame Cathedral on Fire in Paris

    A fire has broken out at the famous Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris.The cause of the blaze was not immediately clear, but officials say that it could be linked to renovation work.
    Images on social media show plumes of smoke billowing into the air above the 850-year-old Gothic building.
    Last year, the Catholic Church in France launched an urgent appeal for funds to save the cathedral, which was starting to crumble.
    A major operation is under way to tackle the blaze, which broke out on Monday afternoon, and an area surrounding the building in central Paris has been cleared, officials said.

    This truly is tragic. Such a beautiful and iconic building.

    This is BIG news!!!

    It's one of Paris's most important monuments and it would be something of a national tragedy were it to be destroyed.

    The damage will be quite considerable, even if they manage to save it.

    Very sad indeed, especially because it is Holy Week. My father just visited Notre Dame.

    Exactly one month after the New Zealand shooting. Perhaps not a coincidence.

    I'm just listening to the BBC talking about the 'terrible loss for European culture' ... as if they actually cared about this!

    Apparently there was a major fire in the Cathedral in 1836 as well. It's likely there were more major fires there over the centuries so as destructive and unpleasant as it is, it can be fixed.

    Look at all the cathedrals Germany had to fix over time after WWII

    Still, it's unpleasant to see this happen as it is a wonderful and historic building.

    In a time where electrical systems were highly unstable, and heating and lighting often came from candles and fireplaces, one could expect such things to occur. But in the modern era, culturally significant buildings are usually fitted with sprinkler systems and detectors that should prevent any fire from getting out of hand, or preventing them from starting all together. That's why I don't believe this was an accident. It's highly unlikely a fire could become so well established without anyone wanting it to. That combined with all the hundreds of church desecrations that has been happening in France over the last few years, makes it all very suspicious.
