A sad day in Paris. Notre Dame Cathedral which survived the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, WWI, WWII suffered a devastating fire on Monday April 14, 2019. Here's a link to 119 pix of the fire, graphics of the cathedral and the spread of the fire, Paris FD tower platforms in action, a 'super pumper, heart-broken observers, heart-rending photos of the fire and its extent. The day after the fire, three very, very rich Parisian businessmen each pledged 100 million euros. Total pledges so far are 400 million euros towards rebuilding. The structure is 850 years old., the fire was confined to the roof, FF could get into the bldg to rescue precious artifacts.

We has something similar here in NYC in December 2001 when the bookstore in the Cathedral of St John the Divine caught fire but was contained. A Lot of smoke residue had to be cleared from the cathedral.
