    Looks like a very bad fire. Not good.

      It's a national disaster. My parent's little apartment is on Île-Saint-Louis. My mother called me and I could hear she was crying, then I turned on the TV and saw it. I'm at a loss for words...it's a national disaster of unbelievable proportions.

        The entire roof is gone, walls may be buckling. The 900 year old stain glass windows....no one knows. If the fire didn't destroy them, the water pressure from the hoses probably did.

            Absolute tragedy! I haven't shed tears for some years, But I have now...
            ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
            All human ills he can subdue,
            Or with a bauble or medal
            Can win mans heart for you;
            And many a blessing know to stew
            To make a megloamaniac bright;
            Give honour to the dainty Corse,
            The Pixie is a little shite.

              Believe me when I say that it's not just a national disaster, it's a world disaster....

                It would appear the stain glass windows....installed in the year 1260, are gone.

                  Indeed it is. I just don't know what to think. My wife and I were actually talking about returning for 2020 with our daughter. Now she will never see it.

                    Massive cultural disaster. What in the world would burn that much inside that thing, it's built of the old school stonework with minimal or no wooden support structure on the walls proper.

                        Its a cultural tragedy which the usual suspects are finding very amusing

                          I hope they got the relics, especially the one of the Crown of Thorns, out in time.

                              Certainly ,a sad loss to us all.
