Fucking hell imagine being responsible for that.

Was there last year. Paris gets a bad rep but it’s a beautiful city and Notre Dame is stunning. Hopefully it’s salvageable.

Oh god, hopefully they can save the structure, it would be horrible to lose this historical architectural piece.

$5 says whatever caused it was the stupidest and most avoidable thing ever.

Judge Frollo is at it again.

But seriously, i hope they can put it out with minimum damage to the building and the populace.

That is awful. I was just there a few years ago and the Notre Dame is an absolute historical treasure.

I hope it won't destroy the building that much but from the few twitter videos the fire is spreading really quick which is pretty bad.
