0:38 the iconic spire is from the 1840s and not the 12th century.

Looks like a real monumental effort to put this fire out. Apparently the French Police are better at spraying down French Citizens than the French Fire Department is at Fighting Fires!

People filming in portrait mode should be thrown right into the fire while it's still going. What a bunch of tools.

I hope those demonic statues have all burnt down. This is the image of a holy building worshipping torture.

Renovation work is always risky, for all that it has to be done. Two of the greatest ocean liners were destroyed by fire when they had the workmen in.

A act of God. Showing people that creating wealth under his name is not his teaching. God doesnt need a million dollar temple when he is within us.

Pay close attention to anyone who applauds or sits neutral on the destruction of the cathedral.

So heartbreaking. I'm neither Catholic nor French, but I desperately hope the fire will soon be brought under control and that this beautiful cathedral can be fully restored.

The roof is the easy part to rebuild the spire and gargoyles that got destroyed are much harder to rebuild and will take a very long time to be rebuild
