    My understanding is that it is undergoing a renovation at the moment. I wonder if it is related to that?

    According to some sources, the fire expanded from the structures used to renovate the building...

    The silver lining (if there is one) is that some art and statues were removed for the renovation. But a lot was still inside. Much of the art has been in there for over 500 years.

    I watched the video of the spire collapsing, that was gut wrenching. :/

    Nobody lives lost though correct? That’s the important thing imo.

    none that have been reported. firefighters are standing a bit back as there’s no structural guarantee on old stuff like this. they’re just containing it I think

    I saw some guys on Reddit claim it was terrorism that started the fire.

    Interesting Wikipedia article. The whole theory of the fire being caused by terrorism is completely bullshit, especially when you look at images of the fire.

    Of course there was also a French politician that's trying to hint at it.

    You know, I briefly thought it could've been that at first, but then I realized that it's way to big of a conclusion to jump to.

    Trump doesn't know what he's talking about as usual. The dumping of water at a high altitude would case structural damage and the possibility of water hitting a pedestrian. Trump is an expert on forrest fires like how they rake the leaves in Finland.;)
