UPDATE: “EVERYTHING IS BURNING, NOTHING WILL BE LEFT” — Notre Dame Cathedral going up in flames! [LIVE STREAM]

UPDATED WITH LIVE STREAMS OF FIRE…

The famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France that was built between 1163-1385 is currently going up in flames.

There are videos all over social media showing huge billows of smoke and fire coming out of the top of the Cathedral:




And here are some photos:

CNN is now covering this and says the flames are coming out of the cathedral itself.

This is a horrible way to start Easter week. I hope they get it under control very soon.

 
UPDATE:

They are blaming the fire on ongoing renovations.



A recent photo shows just how big the fire has become:

 
UPDATE 2: The spire has fallen:

 
UPDATE 3: As Raymond Arroyo points out…

Don’t be surprised if the initial reports of this being related to the ongoing renovations turns out to be wrong.

 
UPDATE 4: “Everything is burning, nothing will be left”

 
UPDATE 5:

The fire has spread to one of the towers:

 
UPDATE 6:

 
UPDATE 7:

Christians singing outside the burning Cathedral…

I am a Engineer, on all Restoration sites that I have been on we had
Fire protection stations And everyone working on site had to read the fire
prevention procedures. It Does not look like they had them from all the photos that I have seen.
On a old site like this they should have been everywhere on that roof
scaffolding! someone FUBARed. even if it was not a accident at least have
the fire protection in place

“Michel Picaud, from the Friends of Notre Dame organization responsible for the renovation efforts at the
cathedral, told NBC News that, to his knowledge, the church’s organ and stained glass windows were not damaged.
“The entire roof is fully destroyed,” Picaud said. “The fire started up near the roof top while another fire started in the north bell tower.””

I pray he is correct about the organ and windows. I saw a photo of the interior and it didn’t look as bad as it could have.

Now, if he is correct in his second sentence, how do fires start in two different places?

Clearly the French authorities had no plan, should a fire break out at a historical site at the heart of Paris.

The Louvre, the d’Orsey, and many other irreplaceable buildings housing priceless art are located just down from Notre Dame.

Do they have plans, should fire break out here, too?

Sections of Paris are muslim strongholds where non-muslims simply no longer go, including the French Gendarme. We cannot have that happen here. Is there any question that islam would love to destroy the National Cathedral in WADC and make it into a victory mosque, as well? I-Ham Omar and Rashid Tlaib would be at the forefront and no demonrat would oppose them. Just another reason that demonrats can never be trusted with any power at all.

I agree, it seems entirely likely that a flammable substance was spread first. This is too coincidental, and it is inconceivable to me that there was no one watching out for fire, no fire extinguishers near the work, etc. Even with it made of wood, it spread too fast.

Exactly. Once the fire is over an investigation can be conducted on how the fire started, what the response times were and why, and if there was a fire-fighting plan, why did it fail, or if there wasn’t one, why not?

They can’t even start a serious investigation until experts can examine the ruins and investigators can question anybody involved.

TXGRunner

If they can’t get in to fight the fire, how can they have access to make a determination on the cause?

To be clear, I have no idea what caused it. Renovations frequently lead to fires because there are flammable chemicals, heat sources, and improvised electrical connections. Still, pushing a narrative on the cause and who to blame while the fires are still climbing is irresponsible and based on a fundamental lie: that they know anything.

Sky’s gothic architecture expert is speculating that MAYBE the two towers survive (unless the fire spreads), but the Church proper is likely a total loss. The roof’s collapse is compromised the rest of the structure because gothic architecture depends on interlocking. Says it’s amazing that the walls are still up right now, but he doesn’t expect them there by morning.

As a big fan of the subject myself (historical architecture), what really strikes me is that… yea, we can reconstruct it. But the ancient timbers are gone forever. The blood and sweat that went into that medieval construction, limited as it was by the tools of the era, is gone forever. Rebuilding is great, but the true tragedy is the loss of its origins.

It won’t be the Cathedral of Notre Dame anymore. It’ll be a modern-made replica. That’s the most heartbreaking part of it all.

It’s a good day to reflect on the various reasons why this is a tragedy.

In Jordan Peterson’s lecture series on the Bible, he has often pointed out how remarkable it is that throughout Europe, really throughout the old Roman Empire, that so much human capital and so many resources have been used to create iconic images, structures, and spaces. It has all been beautiful and made Old Europe such a wonder to visit for centuries.

It’s safe to say that the most enduring and most voluminous works of these have been of Christian inspiration.

On one scale, this ruin is barely a loss. On another it is one of the greatest losses in human history. So it will take years to understand the consequences.
