So fair to say the person(s) that accidentally started the fire are now the most hated human(s) in France.

If only there were a place they could go to for forgiveness and make that confession in

I mean, we all know that braindead chimp couldn't make less sense than Trump. but he's not wrong. Do they not have a single water bomber? It might have saved more of the church. 

 

I'm not sure a tanker plane or helicopter would be of much use on a structure fire - Dropping thousands of gallons of water instantly onto one spot might compromise the structural integrity of the building.

Water bombers are highly inaccurate and useless, if not dangerous, in an urban environment where that volume of water could collapse roofs of other buildings if they miss the target.

Apparently most of the artwork and artifacts were saved (including the crown of thorns). Many were off-site as part of the restoration. This includes many of the stone gargoyles on the structure.

God trump is a fucking idiot. I’m waiting for his comment that American firefighters would have saved the cathedral.

No it will be something along the lines of how the French have those little itty bitty fire trucks, and in America we have these great big machines that put out fires.

No one on this Earth has ever needed to be punched right in the mouth as much Donald Trump does.

As it turns out, the French state -- not the Catholic Church -- actually owns the physical structure and assets of the cathedral.

 

Now it's up to the French government to sell the rebuilding effort to French taxpayers.  Oh boy.

I followed a few tweets by that Gregg Favre guy and I kinda want someone to punch him in the face and throw him in the fire.

So if I'm following right this is now more like pretty bad than a disaster. Some stuff, like one of the rose windows, destroyed, but nowhere near the complete loss it was looking like it might turn into.

I'm shocked at how intact it is considering what we saw earlier.

Apparently the wooden roof was on top of a stone roof. So in that drone shot where it looked like the entire building was engulfed, I think what was going on was that the burning wooden roof had mostly fallen onto the stone roof instead of into the church.

Zoom in on the altar if you're on mobile. There's clearly some smoldering debris in front of the altar.
