I was reading about how desperate they are for funds to save it just 2 days' ago. If they can limit the damage in this fire, and I realise how big an if that might be, it could end up being a strangely serendipitous event, prompting the type of state aid and fundraising for a proper restoration.
Grasping at silver linings there
nah, the tower's fucked.
Well, put it this way, without the fire it's fucked anyway.
Weird yellow tinge to the smoke
It is, isn't it?
Very serious indeed now.
A suspiciously strangely serendipitous event if we want to get truly alliterative about it.
But no. Fucking terrible.
Edit “potentially linked to renovation work”. How’s that for irony.
Brown smoke indicates that wood is being heated to its ignition temperature. In most cases, this signals that the incident is transitioning from a contents fire to a structural fire.
The spire has collapsed.
It's like a much less serious 9-11.
Flying water tankers.
What a fucking clown
I am watching it on France24, Freesat 205. very depressing.
Notre Dame 2050 will be the two towers at the front and some variety of Norman Foster glass and steel supershed with a crap memorial fountain.
