Not the school, but the cathedral.

Probably one of those lazy French construction workers took a smoke break and tossed his match on to the roof by accident.

650 years down in flames

Well, that's not good. We pretty much know from that that the insides are gone. CNN is reporting that emergency crews are trying to save artwork at the back of the church.

The fire hoses are really concentrating on the south wing, based on what I'm seeing on the live cams. I'm not seeing concentration on the north tower and don't see as much smoke there as I did earlier, but maybe that's just the angle of the camera.

CNN is reporting now that the two front towers are safe.

In 2003, we took a tour through the UK and France, and one of the things that they do at Notre Dame is allow college tours to perform a few songs there just during the day while people are visiting. For a 21-year-old kid, it was a pretty incredible experience, so seeing her up in flames is really tough.

They are all nerdy. Smh. :-)

The reporters on site are saying that the fires have dropped below roof level for the first time since the fire peaked.

No kidding. It seems like they've got the towers and the outside walls left. I wonder what else will survive.

I have been to Paris 3 times over the years. Hated the damned city. But all 3 times I hit Notre Dame. Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL Church.

Sorry to see this happen - but I'm fairly certain that the Frogs WILL rebuild.

I'm not sure what rebuilding means, though. Do you reproduce the stuff that was there on the inside? We'll see how the interior survived, but I don't think a 100 percent reproduction would really be the same.

The exterior can be restored and has more or less survived other than the roof and steeple, but I'm really curious what will happen to the interior.
