The building was under renovation, and fire burns up. The portion that burned appears to be flammable structure. A sprinkled system would not be effective in this instance, they are now effective against occupant fire, not structural fire.This is probably a dumb question, but was there no sprinkler system in there? I understand they wanted to keep it as original as possible, and that the fire likely started where there may not have been one anyways, and that of course there are areas with artwork they wouldn't want to get soaked, but it could have maybe helped a bit?
Doesn’t that one still sit unfinished to this day?
Oh, they said on the news that the bronze statues were removed earlier for the restoration without further explanation. I understand what they meant now, that's a relief. Thanks for the picture.I’m seriously so happy that it looks like a lot has been saved. I started crying when those drone images showed up.
I love Notre Dame. I had an intense affair with it when I was in Paris in 2014. I went to walk by it every day. Just beautiful and fascinating.
I didn’t take the best pictures. But it’s beautiful. Thank you to the firefighters who saved what they could.
Before it was just copy and paste from message boards, and news websites. Reddit was an extension to that. Now Twitter is an extension to all of that. It's all about ease of access, nothing as really changed about the source. Just accessibility
yea thats a good point
I'm sure they are exaggerating the numbers depending upon who is posting that stuff. I'm not sure I'd say it's complete bullshit though. I mean, I don't consider Newsweek to be a source of alt-right propaganda.
Thankfully they were removed just last week and were going to spend the next few years being cleaned up and restored as part of the roof restoration process that supposedly caused this fire.
And nobody inclined to agree with them will ever call them on the fact that they scramble to blame every high-profile tragedy on Muslims. They have nothing to lose by rushing to judgment, because from their perspective, they only need to be right once to justify what they really want: to kill a billion people.
