What a disaster. Reminiscent on a much larger scale of the Glasgow School of Art fire in Glasgow, a building of historic value that burnt down while being renovated, after a previous fire as it happens. No doubt it’ll keep the construction and insurance lawyers busy for a long time.

Indeed, very sad to see it. I hope they manage to put the fire out soon.

I hope something at least is salvaged. It's such an iconic Church, such a beautiful part of Paris, so much history happened there. If it's destroyed, it will be a great tragedy.

Good grief, I just saw it a minute ago. Terrible. Anticipating to hear what the cause was.

I just checked the news feeds and the fire is still raging. My guess is that the entire roof will be destroyed by the flames.
