One of my fav buildings in Paris and it was a pleasure to attend. One of the most beautiful buildings in the whole world. I hope the firefighters can save it. Really really sad.

This burning is completely out of control. Could it spread to surrounding buildings? :ohno:

I am speechless. 

One of the monuments symbolic of my country going up in flames. 

I feel sick to the stomach

I don't know what to do

 

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

This is heartbreaking, a historic landmark destroyed so quickly. I really hope they can save most of it. The fact that this is happening right before Easter makes it even more sad :(

this is a real loss for humanity & the arts. This was a piece of art 900 years old. I'm so sad the spire collapsed ugh. It's probably never going to be recovered. 

My aunt is an art historian and I grew up in museums and my father is an architect and I am just watching aghast. One of the few places on earth that I always wanted to see in person. I have done so many projects on this building from many different subjects. I feel so sorry for the people of France for losing such a beautiful piece of their history.

The roof has collapsed. 

They are also saying there is almost no way to save it now. 

They fear the fire could spread to other buildings.

My internet browser translating Notre Dame to Our Lady has me in my feelings.

I have class in 15 minutes about music history and I don't think I'm going to handle this well. So much of the western music we know today came from Notre Dame. 

Aw, bless. I know my museology class tomorrow will be horrendous but it's reassuring we have professors and classmates who are probably just as sad as we are, and we can be sad together.

Isn’t there a hospital next door? There is so much ash and pieces of woods flying through the air. I’m really concerned the fire will spread.

Yes, there is a hospital. Hope it doesn't spread.

Don't want to sound stupid or dumb, but are buildings "savable" with a massive fire like this? Like, are the firemen able to stop it from spreading?

Sorry for my English! :(
