Whatever your faith or lack thereof, what a horrific tragedy. I hope there’s no loss of life and that it started accidentally.

This is a real shame. I hope they got the art out.

Not much hope of that. Roof collapsed, spire collapsed, now one of the towers is burning.

I read that it was being renovated, so hopefully they took out the art for that. I really hope the actual cathedral survives

No. It was being done in stages. There will be a lot of things lost even if the walls don't collapse. That is what they hope to prevent now.

Very sad and this happens right before Easter Sunday. It's more than 600 years older than the united States.

Started in the 11th century, completed in the 13th.

Got to see it in 2015.

Yes. When I got back from a trip to Amsterdam, Paris, and London in 2015 and went back to work in Lower Manhattan, I walked past Trinity Church Wall Street and thought, "dang, that's not old at all." 1850s.

Yeah were are much much younger than our European counterparts. I just hope this is not symbolic of something really bad to come, in this Holy Week before Easter. And all the important relics, I hope all was not lost.
