A fire has broken out at the world-famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Pictures posted on social media showed enormous plumes of smoke billowing into the city´s skyline as firefighters rushed to the historic site. According to French newspaper Le Monde, the fire broke out in the attic of the historic monument before spreading to engulf a large section of the roof. A spokesperson for the cathedral said the blaze was first reported at 5.50pm (GMT) and the building was evacuated soon after. Officials in Paris said the fire could be linked to renovation works being carried out at the

Horrifying. I wonder if a mosque will be built in its place.

We took a tour to the top of Notre Dame de Paris a few years ago, and went through parts of the upper roof structure, all ancient oak beams.

What a shame, and my first thought is - where are the jihadis?

FTA The fire could be related to renovation work.

Or it could be related to renovation workers.... who shouldn´t have been hired.

Wow, this is just heart breaking!!!!

As a Christian (though not Catholic), I cry for the loss of such a beautiful church that has stood for centuries for the glory of God!!!!

And even if you aren´t Christian, the loss of such a major historical piece of architecture -- that was the very heart of Paris -- is just terrible and heartbreaking!!!! Those flying buttresses are amazing!!!!!!!

I think Muslims did it. And Catholics are complicit because the don’t go to church. And the clergy is complicit because they preach leftwing garbage to keep them out. A treasure of the faith of the ages is now lost, almost as if God is trying to tell us something.

This is heartbreaking. I have visited Notre Dam twice, it is an amazing building and the art and grandeur of its interior are breathtaking.

Prayers that it can be salvaged, but it will never be the same, and it will be a long time before anyone can visit and marvel at this iconic cathedral again.

"Migration" has consequences.

Fortunately, Christians store their treasures in Heaven, and revere places, buildings, shrines, and even people only as symbols and representatives - with no more importance than that. It´s about Jesus and the Father´s plan of salvation - period.

Jihadists will never understand that.

France had better do a thorough investigation, because if this is a terrorist´s work, we had better be told about it. They need to look at the construction workers - are they muslim? This gorgeous cathedral was a target, and Christian churches have been being defaced and burned at an alarming rate in France lately.

This makes me sick, no matter.

Being periodically updated. Very good reporting and photos.

It seems to me that the construction scaffolding could have provided access to the roof. The fire was said to have started “very small” early this morning - some wonder why it could not have been put out then.

If it is arson, will the French gvt. admit it? If they do say it was arson, it could trigger a summer of civil unrest that would make the yellow vest riots a joyous memory. This is looking suspicious to me-a Christian artifact under renovation burns down to the ground?

It´s too soon to assume who or what caused this tragic loss of such a great icon, not just of Paris but really of Western civilzation. But in a very real sense, regardless of actual cause, it is symbolic of the West´s own abandonment and burning down of its own political, legal, religious, and cultural treasures.

The acquiescence of the West´s leaders is shocking. Since when is Western civilation and its hundreds of years of evolved innovations somehow "eqivalent" to barbaric cultures? Sorry, they´re not. And no amount of shouting or shaming is going to convince me or those of us who have fled such cultures to say it is.

I will NOT join in the burning down of our culture in the false equivalency of "diversity". They are immigrating HERE. Nobody is immigrating there. That tells you everything you need to know about the relative value involved.

We have reached the point of acceptance that the destruction of iconic structures brings with it the immediate thought that there is Islamic attachment to the act. Whether it is or is not the cause of this tragedy, the very thought of Islamic involvement is a testament to their hatred of all things Infidel. Yet, we welcome them into our countries. Insane.

What strikes me is that Catholics can be just as devoted and fanatical as any muslim. When muslim mosques start getting destroyed, and attempts made to level Mecca, muslims may rethink their strategy.

This is only going to escalate. I don´t believe this fire was just an accident.

The French are SO massively incompetent. What a tragedy. I am glad I had visited multiple times, and had climbed the tower last visit, walked through parts of the wooden roof structure.
Such a loss of history and beauty.

The Cathedral will be rebuilt over time. It will be restored.
Think of your faith and your soul during this Holy Week. With Easter approaching we can regard this as a sign for renewel of both spirit and soul. We should once again rebuild our spiritual lives.
Notre Dame will be rebuilt to it´s former beauty.
I will not allow myself to believe anything else.

If it is terrorism, we’ll never hear about it. Never. It might then be the final straw for any sane French people left there...and for that reason we will never know. Accident, case closed (true or not). If it was an accident, imagine carrying that burden for the rest of your life! No thanks. At any rate, a heartbreaking tragedy for the world. I teared up watching it live and sadly I never made it there in all my travels. I regret that.

On Good Friday 1997, the little Catholic Church I attended while in college burned to the ground due to an electrical short in an old refrigerator. Thankfully, Father Mike had removed the Sacraments for Good Friday and stored them in the church offices next door.

We were completely devastated at the loss. That Easter Sunday, at the Mass held in the Church parking lot, with a clean bird bath holding Holy Water, Father Mike reminded us that it isn´t the building that makes the Church but the people inside.

I remind myself of this every time something like this happens. It is something the jihadists will NEVER understand.

We have no reason -- so far -- to conclude that this was arson. There are so many ways that it could have been caused by incompetence. There were a kiloton of scaffolding, roof timbers half a millennium old, and a multitude of potential ignition sources like circular saws, drills, maybe even cutting torches. And French workers, many of them probably smokers. The fire may even have been started by a Gauloise.

The fire started about 10 minutes after tours ended. Hearing that, my Muslim alarm went off. Tour the building, then start a fire and walk away with the rest of the tourists. What hasn´t been determined is where the fire started. If it´s determined that the fire started up toward the roof, then workers started the fire.

They´ve done upkeep and repairs over the last 850 years w/o burning it to the ground. Taking great care w solvents, etc.

This is not a learning ground for crews like this. They must know, like an archeological dig - great, meticulous care must be taken on every inch.

Will the windows survive? I agree with so many posters - the buildings aren´t most important to Christians but they do stand as powerful symbols and this is a devastating loss. Even more devastating that the Church has so little hold on the French people, though. Can this tragedy be used to open eyes and hearts to our Lord and precious Savior?

Mecca and Medina should have been bombed as soon as we verified that is was Islam that destroyed the Twin Towers. That would have sent the strong and meaningful message that anything they do to us we will strike back in triplicate.

But no, we had to produce a measured response and have been placating these animals for almost two decades. If/when the French find out for sure who did this the retaliation should be swift and powerful, IOW not the usual.

Seeing the photos taken after sunrise, I am MASSIVELY more hopeful.

I have commented at greater length on other threads.
Short version. Both bell towers appear 100% intact. The primary structure of the cathedral is all stone; walls, flying buttresses and interior roof vaults. All primary structure appears intact except one roof vault and a "smallish" hole in another. the largest stained glass windows appear to be intact.
These stone interior roof vaults appear to have kept almost all the huge burning roof beams out of the interior spaces, which appear to be largely unburned, too, as opposed to early reports that "the interior is gutted"
The organ is reported to have survived. Most interior wooden pews appear intact.

They have an emergency need to get a temporary weather cap on top to keep out rain, which was the only real purpose of the wooden, copper sheathed portion that appears to be fully destroyed.

IMO, the prayers largely worked, far less destruction appears in the pictures than I had imagined from the media reports.

On February 27, 2019 at a speaking engagement held at a Washington D.C. bookstore, newly elected Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar stated, with apparent reference to both American Jews and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee ("AIPAC"), "I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country." This comment followed recent tweets from Omar suggesting that American elected officials were "bought off" by the pro-Israel lobby, and earlier tweets from before she was elected, beseeching Allah to punish Israel for its "evil deeds."The tweets were

A funny thing happened on the way to the 2016 presidential election. The unelectable, uncouth, unintelligent, unpolitical, unlikeable, and utterly unthinkable guy won. Clearly, the "deplorables" assisted, as did the "bitter clingers" — owners of guns and Bibles — and the so-called uneducated, unsophisticated, and ridiculed patriotic swath of the American people. But it took more. The uncovereds carried President Trump over the finish line to unbelievable victory. Who and what are the uncovereds? They are the silent army who are passionately pro-Trump but wouldn´t and still won´t admit it. Why? one might ask. Were they cowards?In the months leading

Donald Trump has thanked Rush Limbaugh, after the staunch Republican figure delivered a blistering defense of the president in response to Democrat jibes. Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday night following Limbaugh´s radio interview with Martha MacCallum, where he took aim at Republicans who do not fully support the president, and Democrats who have been ´unable to defeat´ him. His words came in the wake of a New York Times op-ed by Joe Lockhart, a former secretary to then President Clinton, who claimed: ´Republicans today are the party of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson.´ (Tweet/Photo) Paraphrasing Lockhart´s words, Limbaugh

All aboard the crazy train! On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, liberal media janitor and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter appeared alongside host Brooke Baldwin to complain about the Trump administration boycotting Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), which is arguably the most pompous, self-worshipping annual celebration known to man (besides Hollywood awards shows). Because after all, there’s no profession that loves itself more than the national press! Here’s how Baldwin put it in one of two teases for their discussion: “And it is no secret the President likes to insult the free press but now we´re learning the White House

Bless this gender neutral ship and all

Shiver me timbers! Those politically correct landlubbers have decided that generations of seafaring tradition must end. In a move that would scupper the custom of launching a boat with the words ‘God bless her and all who sail in her...’ a leading museum wants to make sailing vessels gender neutral. For centuries, ships have been referred to as ‘she’ and given feminine names. But the Scottish Maritime Museum says it is to introduce a ‘gender-neutral interpretation’ of craft and call them ‘it’. Officials say it is because signs on exhibits bearing the words ‘she’ and ‘her’ have been vandalised. However,

In response to a horrific series of radical Islamist jihadist attacks Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka that killed 290 and left an additional 500 injured, Rick Noack of The Washington Post has decided that the proper subject of his ire ought to be..."far-right anger in the West."Yes, seriously. Here is a portion of Noack´s piece, entitled, "Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-right anger in the West": To some, [the attacks were] further proof that Christians in many parts of the world are under attack.

What crime did President Donald Trump actually commit, in which there is actual evidence, that would allow the Democrats to proceed with impeachment? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) held a “private call” with Democratic leaders on Monday about what they should do about President Trump and the results of the Mueller report. Seems like things didn’t go the Democrats’ way, did it? They are scrambling. I have never seen anything like this before; now they are circling burning wagons to see what they have left to do. To Nancy Pelosi, the message is this: Trump should be held “accountable” for

Former FBI Director James Comey and his wife separately donated $2,700 to Democratic Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s presidential campaign, according to Rolling Stone. The contributions near the $2,800 maximum donation permitted during the primary. Back around the time of Comey’s firing from the FBI, Klobuchar told Fox9, “I was a friend of Jim Comey in law school, a classmate of his. And while I didn’t agree with him on how we handled the Hillary Clinton investigation, he was respected by the agents that worked with him, respected by law enforcement in Minnesota.” (Photo) Comey and his wife previously donated the

Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she believes Donald Trump would have been indicted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe if he weren´t president, though stopped short of calling for his impeachment. Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president in 2016, he argued during a Q&A session in New York that Mueller’s report “could not be clearer” in making the case Trump tried to obstruct the Russia investigation -- even though Mueller did not come to an explicit conclusion on that question. “I think there’s enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said on MSNBC Monday morning his city will ban “inefficient” steel and glass skyscrapers as part of their Green New Deal. While Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal sputtered in Washington D.C., her home city of New York has embraced key pillars of the plan. When asked about it on Morning Joe, de Blasio outlined the proposal. “We are making the Green New Deal come alive here in New York City,” he said. “It’s three very basic ideas. One, the biggest source of emissions in New York City is buildings.”

Helen Meigs thinks about climate change. A lot. “It’s always in the back of my mind,” said the Macalester College sophomore. Concern about climate change isn’t rare on campus. In fact, she’s convinced it’s widespread. “My whole generation wonders if we’re getting cheated out of a full future, and we can’t put it out of our minds,” she said. “It’s an anxiety-inducing situation.” That anxiety has a name: climate grief. In 2017, the American Psychological Association recognized the complex mental health burden in people who have experienced losses from natural disasters associated with climate change. It also found evidence that

During a CNN town hall in New Hampshire Monday, the South Bend, Indiana, mayor was asked how he planned to unite conservatives, moderates and liberal Christians. "It can be challenging to be a person of faith who´s also part of the LGBTQ community and yet, to me, the core of faith is regard for one another," Buttigieg said.

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election, wants to cancel billions of dollars in student loan debt and make college cheaper for students going forward. Warren, in a post on the website Medium, proposed canceling $50,000 in student loan debt for anyone with annual household income under $100,000, which her campaign said would amount to 42 million Americans. It would also cancel some debt for those with household incomes between $100,000 and $250,000. Warren, who has long advocated in Congress for providing debt relief to students, called student loan

Hispanics have “legitimate fear” of the Trump administration and its quest to query Americans about their citizenship on the 2020 Census, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Tuesday, as the Supreme Court debated whether President Trump has the power to add the question back in to the decennial count. The government’s lawyer, Solicitor General Noel Francisco, was less than two sentences into his argument when Justice Sotomayor pounced for the first time, keeping up a steady stream of questions suggesting Mr. Trump and his team invented reasons to ask about citizenship, and that Hispanics in particular will refuse to take part, souring

Former President Barack Obama and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were ripped for their failure to use the word "Christian" in their responses to the devastating attacks in Sri Lankan on Sunday, instead referring to those slaughtered as "Easter worshippers." (Video) Not only was it notable that Obama and Clinton both used the term "Easter worshipers" in their reactions, but it was highlighted that the politicos were sure to use the word "Muslim" in responses to the horrific slaughter of Muslims in a New Zealand mosque last month.Suicide bombers targeted churches and hotels on Sunday in Sri Lanka as Christians

There’s a concrete reason for Mayor de Blasio’s notion to ban New York city’s “classic glass and steel skyscrapers” — he’s got rocks in his head.Has any officeholder ever turned so viciously on his own town? De Blasio’s poisonous City Hall reign is distinguished by corruption, laziness and incompetence — but not by rank stupidity. Until today.He wants New York to be “first of any major city on the Earth” to make building owners “clean up your act .?.?. to save energy.”
