This is a national disaster for us...
The news report there are drones operated by firemen (not yet the thermal Anafi I guess).
Fire is still pending ... terrible !

Yes unfortunately. As I understand it, all woodwork is burned in large parts of the cathedral hall, including the tower.

Regards, Leif.
 
Yes, what we called ‘the forest’, thousands of oaks that where part of the roof structure, that was dated 13th century, is definitely gone.
They are still trying to stop the fire, but it is almost impossible.
They are pouring water on the two main towers in the hope of saving them...
We will see tomorrow what’s left of this old lady... hope they could get the ‘treasure’ out of the building (paintings, reliquary...).
You must know that people cry here. It is even worst than what we recently had in Paris...
 
Very sorry to hear that this historic building, that was in the middle of renovations, has been terribly damaged. A great loss for France and the rest of the world.
