    History gone. Unfortunate. ☹️
    Any ideas how it started?

    There were renovations underway, so maybe connected.

    These things should not happen.
    It's not earthquake or lightening.
    But faulty wiring or discarded cigarette.

    Shocking.

    I understand it needed a lot of renovation and it is well insured.

    Just sayin’...

    According to Swedish media, the question has been raised why it took so long to get the extinguishing started.

    Thanks for posting that! Interesting the concrete mortar held fast while the stones were the ones being porous and the water deteriorating the stones over the centuries. Maybe they should be using rock not so porous?

    It looks like they aren't doing anything.
    Maybe some fires are too big to put out?

    Quasimodo had been working at Notre Dame for several years without taking even one day off. He finally decided he needed a vacation. He spoke to the bishop at Notre Dame and asked for two weeks off. The bishop agreed on one condition - Quasimodo had to find someone to replace him for the two weeks he would be gone. Quasimodo agreed and put an ad in the paper for a bell ringer.

    The next day, his doorbell rang. Quasimodo answered it and there was a man standing there with no arms. Quasimodo said, "Can I help you?" The man answered, "I'm here about the position of bell ringer."

    Quasimodo looked at the man and said, "Are you crazy? You don't have any arms. You can't ring bells!"

    The man replied, "I use my face. I come from a long line of bell ringers and none of us has arms. We are excellent bell ringers." Quasimodo was curious, so he said, "Let's see how you do," and he took the man up to the bell tower. He pointed at the biggest bell. "Ok, go ahead and show me what you can do."

    The man took a running start and raced over to the bell, hitting it with his face. The bell rang beautifully. It was almost as good as Quasimodo's bell ringing. Quasimodo was impressed. "Ok, let's see how you do with the other bells." They went over to the smallest bell. "Go ahead, show me what you've got."

    Again, the man took a running start and launched himself at the bell. He missed and went right out the window and fell to the street below, dying instantly.

    Quasimodo raced down the stairs and out into the street. A policeman walked up to him and said, "Do you know who this man is?" Quasimodo shook his head. "No, I don't, but his face rings a bell."

    Although sad, this is somewhat symbolic

    The Catholic church as devolved to the point of essentially ignoring the world wide mass genocide of abortion, at least according to their theology, while giving sermons on the evils of building walls instead. Don't get me started on the continual pedophilia fiasco that the Lefties in the church refuse to address.

    Then there is Europe, a continent who has essentially become secularized, aside from the mass immigration of Muslims, and have kicked God and the Bible out of their lives.

    I say bull does the cathedral and build an abortion center or something or perhaps a monument to Karl Marx.

    Enjoy Europe.

    You are in luck, I have live footage of Quasimodo.
