Default Breaking! Notre Dame cathedral on fire.


Yikes! Very sad! Hopefully they can put it out fast but it looks pretty bad.

Not good when you have flames coming 30 to 40 feet out of the roof.

That 1st photo looks pretty bad.

Hope that great landmark doesn't suffer too much damage.

This is really not good. Speculation is that renovations in the cathedral sparked the fire.

I have been there an to say the Church is/was spectacular inside is an understatement. Nothing in America comes even close. A tragic day for the world.
