    Somewhere, over there!
    The current guess is something involving the renovations?

    Apparently a Paris wildfire spread to it...

    EDIT: It might be due to renovations they were doing to the building.

    This is really truly sad. It's a big cultural piece of the whole world going away. Damn.

    I think so the iconic spire has collapsed and the rest of the building is in danger of also doing so.

    Yes it is still on fire.

    Sounds like the spire has fallen, roof has caved in and stained glass has been damaged from the heat and ash.

    A real shame to see such a beautiful building go down like this.

    I hope the fire can be extinguished before too much damage is done.

    I have fond memories of a holiday to Paris with Costello and other friends many years ago. We stayed in an apartment that was overlooking the Notre Dame. It's a beautiful place.
