Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Global News report that fire precautions are notoriously poor in Paris generally, with extinguishers few and far between, and domestic alarms very rare. Perhaps it is a cultural thing?

The cause was either:

1. Deliberate i.e. arson, or;
2. Accidental.

Whatever the cause, the expected establishment cover up has already begun as can be seen from the above statement.

"...all necessary fire precautions were taken," is clearly false because if they had of been, there wouldn't have been a fire.

They just can't help themselves.

Notre Dame fire: Macron pledges to rebuild devastated Paris cathedral

https://youtu.be/wuuJB28NGsg

A fire that devastated Notre Dame Cathedral in the heart of Paris was brought under control by firefighters in the early hours of Tuesday morning, though officials warned there were still residual fires to put out.

Thousands of Parisians watched in horror from behind police cordons as a ferocious blaze devastated Notre Dame Cathedral on Monday night, destroying its spire and a large part of the roof.

An investigation has been opened by the prosecutor's office, but police said it began accidentally and may be linked to building work at the cathedral. The 850-year-old gothic masterpiece had been undergoing restoration work..

Re: Notre Dame cathedral on fire

Religious or not - it is tragic to see such a famous landmark destroyed, if only partially. I cannot see how this can be rebuilt. The timbers were so old and a news item said that they were in the main in one piece. Huge trees to produce these.

Could be because Notre Dame is owned by the French State & not by the Church.
