What a horrible tragedy to an architectural marvel.

I'm going to be crucified in the chat but um I don't hear the dramatic music from the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

This is a 900 year old building filled with historic artworks. For some reason this feels like the burning of the library of Alexander. A millinum of European history gone right before our eyes! Really really devastating.
