Roof of famed Notre Dame in French capital collapses as fire service are struggling to contain blaze.

Firefighters in Paris are battling to put out a huge blaze that has engulfed the iconic Notre Dame cathedral, a centuries-old building in the heart of the French capital.

Footage showed flames coming out of the Gothic cathedral early on Monday evening, with smoke billowing from the roof as stunned Parisians and tourists watched on in horror.

The structure’s soaring spire later collapsed in flames, and a church spokesman said the entire wooden interior of the 12th-century landmark was burning and likely to be destroyed.

Every country should look at their fire code. A construction project this size should have temporary fire protection. Too many other construction projects have burned and these accidents just repeats itself.

Notre-Dame burning on the same day president Macron is supposed to appear on TV to give the final results of the national debate after 5 months of people protesting in the streets against his stupid and unfair government… yeah, call me a conspirationist but he finally appeared on TV speaking about Notre-Dame ("we will rebuilt it") after many strikes, suppressed schools, unemployement, suppression of taxes for the wealthiest and then he finally appears publicly like a hero! Sorry but I don't buy it!

The fire began in a STONE cathedral right after the last visitors left the building, now in humid April (not on a dry and hot month of August) How are we supposed to believe this is an accident?

Joe speick says:

About time they got a new building
