A fire has broken out at the world-famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Pictures posted on social media showed enormous plumes of smoke billowing into the city´s skyline as firefighters rushed to the historic site. According to French newspaper Le Monde, the fire broke out in the attic of the historic monument before spreading to engulf a large section of the roof. A spokesperson for the cathedral said the blaze was first reported at 5.50pm (GMT) and the building was evacuated soon after. Officials in Paris said the fire could be linked to renovation works being carried out at the

Horrifying. I wonder if a mosque will be built in its place.

We took a tour to the top of Notre Dame de Paris a few years ago, and went through parts of the upper roof structure, all ancient oak beams.

What a shame, and my first thought is - where are the jihadis?

FTA The fire could be related to renovation work.

Or it could be related to renovation workers.... who shouldn´t have been hired.

Wow, this is just heart breaking!!!!

As a Christian (though not Catholic), I cry for the loss of such a beautiful church that has stood for centuries for the glory of God!!!!

And even if you aren´t Christian, the loss of such a major historical piece of architecture -- that was the very heart of Paris -- is just terrible and heartbreaking!!!! Those flying buttresses are amazing!!!!!!!

I think Muslims did it. And Catholics are complicit because the don’t go to church. And the clergy is complicit because they preach leftwing garbage to keep them out. A treasure of the faith of the ages is now lost, almost as if God is trying to tell us something.

This is heartbreaking. I have visited Notre Dam twice, it is an amazing building and the art and grandeur of its interior are breathtaking.

Prayers that it can be salvaged, but it will never be the same, and it will be a long time before anyone can visit and marvel at this iconic cathedral again.

"Migration" has consequences.

Fortunately, Christians store their treasures in Heaven, and revere places, buildings, shrines, and even people only as symbols and representatives - with no more importance than that. It´s about Jesus and the Father´s plan of salvation - period.

Jihadists will never understand that.

France had better do a thorough investigation, because if this is a terrorist´s work, we had better be told about it. They need to look at the construction workers - are they muslim? This gorgeous cathedral was a target, and Christian churches have been being defaced and burned at an alarming rate in France lately.

This makes me sick, no matter.

Being periodically updated. Very good reporting and photos.

It seems to me that the construction scaffolding could have provided access to the roof. The fire was said to have started “very small” early this morning - some wonder why it could not have been put out then.

If it is arson, will the French gvt. admit it? If they do say it was arson, it could trigger a summer of civil unrest that would make the yellow vest riots a joyous memory. This is looking suspicious to me-a Christian artifact under renovation burns down to the ground?

It´s too soon to assume who or what caused this tragic loss of such a great icon, not just of Paris but really of Western civilzation. But in a very real sense, regardless of actual cause, it is symbolic of the West´s own abandonment and burning down of its own political, legal, religious, and cultural treasures.

The acquiescence of the West´s leaders is shocking. Since when is Western civilation and its hundreds of years of evolved innovations somehow "eqivalent" to barbaric cultures? Sorry, they´re not. And no amount of shouting or shaming is going to convince me or those of us who have fled such cultures to say it is.

I will NOT join in the burning down of our culture in the false equivalency of "diversity". They are immigrating HERE. Nobody is immigrating there. That tells you everything you need to know about the relative value involved.

We have reached the point of acceptance that the destruction of iconic structures brings with it the immediate thought that there is Islamic attachment to the act. Whether it is or is not the cause of this tragedy, the very thought of Islamic involvement is a testament to their hatred of all things Infidel. Yet, we welcome them into our countries. Insane.

What strikes me is that Catholics can be just as devoted and fanatical as any muslim. When muslim mosques start getting destroyed, and attempts made to level Mecca, muslims may rethink their strategy.

This is only going to escalate. I don´t believe this fire was just an accident.

The French are SO massively incompetent. What a tragedy. I am glad I had visited multiple times, and had climbed the tower last visit, walked through parts of the wooden roof structure.
Such a loss of history and beauty.

It´s a terrible shame.
The Cathedral will be rebuilt over time. It will be restored.
Think of your faith and your soul during this Holy Week. With Easter approaching we can regard this as a sign for renewel of both spirit and soul. We should once again rebuild our spiritual lives.
Notre Dame will be rebuilt to it´s former beauty.

If it is terrorism, we’ll never hear about it. Never. It might then be the final straw for any sane French people left there...and for that reason we will never know. Accident, case closed (true or not). If it was an accident, imagine carrying that burden for the rest of your life! No thanks. At any rate, a heartbreaking tragedy for the world. I teared up watching it live and sadly I never made it there in all my travels. I regret that.

On Good Friday 1997, the little Catholic Church I attended while in college burned to the ground due to an electrical short in an old refrigerator. Thankfully, Father Mike had removed the Sacraments for Good Friday and stored them in the church offices next door.

We were completely devastated at the loss. That Easter Sunday, at the Mass held in the Church parking lot, with a clean bird bath holding Holy Water, Father Mike reminded us that it isn´t the building that makes the Church but the people inside.

I remind myself of this every time something like this happens. It is something the jihadists will NEVER understand.

We have no reason -- so far -- to conclude that this was arson. There are so many ways that it could have been caused by incompetence. There were a kiloton of scaffolding, roof timbers half a millennium old, and a multitude of potential ignition sources like circular saws, drills, maybe even cutting torches. And French workers, many of them probably smokers. The fire may even have been started by a Gauloise.

The fire started about 10 minutes after tours ended. Hearing that, my Muslim alarm went off. Tour the building, then start a fire and walk away with the rest of the tourists. What hasn´t been determined is where the fire started. If it´s determined that the fire started up toward the roof, then workers started the fire.

They´ve done upkeep and repairs over the last 850 years w/o burning it to the ground. Taking great care w solvents, etc.

This is not a learning ground for crews like this. They must know, like an archeological dig - great, meticulous care must be taken on every inch.

Will the windows survive? I agree with so many posters - the buildings aren´t most important to Christians but they do stand as powerful symbols and this is a devastating loss. Even more devastating that the Church has so little hold on the French people, though. Can this tragedy be used to open eyes and hearts to our Lord and precious Savior?

Mecca and Medina should have been bombed as soon as we verified that is was Islam that destroyed the Twin Towers. That would have sent the strong and meaningful message that anything they do to us we will strike back in triplicate.

But no, we had to produce a measured response and have been placating these animals for almost two decades. If/when the French find out for sure who did this the retaliation should be swift and powerful, IOW not the usual.

Seeing the photos taken after sunrise, I am MASSIVELY more hopeful.

I have commented at greater length on other threads.
Short version. Both bell towers appear 100% intact. The primary structure of the cathedral is all stone; walls, flying buttresses and interior roof vaults. All primary structure appears intact except one roof vault and a "smallish" hole in another. the largest stained glass windows appear to be intact.
These stone interior roof vaults appear to have kept almost all the huge burning roof beams out of the interior spaces, which appear to be largely unburned, too, as opposed to early reports that "the interior is gutted"
The organ is reported to have survived. Most interior wooden pews appear intact.

They have an emergency need to get a temporary weather cap on top to keep out rain, which was the only real purpose of the wooden, copper sheathed portion that appears to be fully destroyed.

IMO, the prayers largely worked, far less destruction appears in the pictures than I had imagined from the media reports.

Reacting to news Thursday that that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia report claims that President Donald Trump was upset by the Trump-Russia probe, Rep. Mark Meadows posed a question to the American public: “Would you be happy about being accused and subsequently investigated for a crime you did not commit?”In a Twitter post, Rep. Meadows disputed the reasoning that, if Trump was unhappy about the investigation, he must be guilty: “Seeing more claims that because the President was unhappy about being investigated, he must be guilty. Hard to call this critique anything other than completely unserious. Would you be happy

Good God, free at last, free at last.Donald Trump is now free to be president without the cloud that hovered over him since his election. No president ever faced, let alone survived, a probe as fierce and determined as this one. Cleared of false charges that threatened to end his presidency, Trump can be forgiven for gloating and rubbing a little salt into the wounds of his tormentors with a jab about serving another “10 to 14 years.” Naturally, the hysterics are hysterical over that one. They can’t even take a joke.Yet Trump’s great victory is not his alone. The

The pair issued a joint, blistering statement Thursday evening in response to the release of the 448-page report, outlining ´at least four significant ways that Mr. Barr has misled the public on the contents of the Mueller report´.

Want some perspective on why so many blue sanctuary cities have so many homeless encampments hovering around? Try the reality that illegal immigrants are routinely given free public housing by the U.S., based on the fact that they are uneducated, unskilled, and largely unemployable. Those are the criteria, and now importing poverty has never been easier. Shockingly, this comes as millions of poor Americans are out in the cold awaiting that housing that the original law was intended to help. Thus, the tent cities, and by coincidence, the worst of these emerging shantytowns are in blue sanctuary cities loaded with

WASHINGTON – President Trump trolled his critics following the release of the Mueller report, joking that he was going to be in office for the next 10 to 14 years. The president was hosting participants of the Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride in the East Room and was given a trophy as a token of appreciation. “This will find a permanent place, at least for six years, in the Oval Office,” Trump said. “I was going to say for at least 10 to 14 years.

Mr. Limbaugh told his audience that the lengthy report exist primarily to fuel biased media attacks against Mr. Trump. “This wasn’t an investigation,” he said. “It was an attempt at a coup.

The New York Yankees‘ anti-racism efforts have extended to pulling from their seventh-inning stretch a famous recording of the legendary Kate Smith singing “God Bless America.” Not because anyone has complained that the song is racist, but because Smith recorded other racially-insensitive standards from and during the Jim Crow era. The Yankees pulled Smith’s “God Bless America” from the rotation at the start of the season, but the New York Daily News reported the reason Thursday—“the Yankees were made aware of Smith’s history of potential racism.” According to the Daily News, the “potential racism” of which

A detailed report from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III said investigators struggled with both the legal implications of investigating President Trump for possible obstruction of justice and the motives behind a range of his most alarming actions, from seeking the ouster of officials to ordering a memo that would clear his name. [SNIP] “if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment.”

MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell criticized conservative-leaning Christians for not being "kinder" and said that South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is "demonstrating how to actually be a Christian," after the 2020 presidential hopeful shrugged off protesters in Iowa last night. "I think that we are going to see a number of protests. Anti-abortion protesters are going to show up at events throughout this primary," she said on MSNBC Live. "I have no doubt. So I think it´s a test for Democrats, including Mayor Pete, about how they can handle that type of direct adversity."
