I cannot believe how fast this burned. It was like an hour.

The thought that I must soon say to children in the future that I knew Paris when Notre dame was still around made my heart sink

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

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

They are saying on the news that there is a bit of progress but I don’t think they will be able to save much. The flames are 50 feet hight or more and the scaffolding will fall and reignite the rest. I just hope that they can save the facade. 

I also hope that no one was inside.

Do you think they will re-build it? or will they just let the ruins in? I feel like its such a historical landmark and given the amount of damage that re-building it would just not make any sense at this point sadly. The symbolic value would no longer be there.

Probably re-build it and make it look like the fire never happened, or maybe the opposite and let the people see that no matter what happens the Notre Dame still stands, if you get the idea.

This is so sad, I went on an art trip to Paris and visited the Norte dame, one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve been in, hope it’s not been damaged greatly and everyone is safe

At this point it makes more sense to leave the ruin to keep as much of the original cathedral for future generations etc...

I hope there was no one inside.

Also, I can't help but think it was not a coincidence this happened on Holy Week. 

I fear it was probably arson. I hope not but the thought keep coming back to me.
