Hours after a massive fire engulfed the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Monday, a city official said the structure of the building had been saved.
The fire at the cathedral caused the roof to collapse, destroyed a spire and spread to one of the building's two rectangular towers. The sight brought many onlookers to tears...
...TThe spire destroyed by the fire contained artifacts considered sacred to Catholics, including a relic believed to be from Jesus Christ's crown of thorns. Relics from Saint Genevieve and Saint Denis are also feared lost.
Michel Picaud, from the Friends of Notre Dame organization responsible for the renovation efforts at the cathedral, told NBC News that, to his knowledge, the church's organ and stained glass windows were not damaged.
"The entire roof is fully destroyed," Picaud said. "The fire started up near the roof top while another fire started in the north bell tower."

Wait...there were TWO fires? That changes the narrative.
The muzzies will just keep burning it.
So two fires... hmmm...
Indeed. God sent His angels there...and He is going to make something beautiful and good come from this as the French people work to rebuild.
“The fire started up near the roof top while another fire started in the north bell tower.”
Two points of ignition at the same time? Nah. Nothing to see here. Just a construction accident after the tourists and workers went home.
My initial thought is that Picaud is an idiot, who qualifies idiocy with the statement “to the best of my knowledge.”
That said, if he is not an idiot, and is correct, believing that two fires broke out within an hour or so of each other after 800+ years of no fires would require the sort of faith that can see dogmatic genius in the present Pope.
The fire started up near the roof top while another fire started in the north bell tower.
Fox guy just said the opposite, so we must wait and see what the real facts are
"People do sh*t."
Its gone forever. It reminds me of what we did in Vietnam: we had to destroy a village to save it.
If they rebuild it, it wont be the original: Frenchies lying about saving it to their own people and to the world.
Even their firefighters were in default surrender mode,
Or the faith that believes the corner’s report that Richard Talley committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a nail gun 7 or 8 times.
What does that translate out as?
Two separate fires means arson. There: I’ve given French investigators the answer, as they would never find it on their own. Arson means someone is very, very hostile to the Catholic Church and/or Christianity. There is, of course, no way of imagining who this might be, but Macron will probably issue a generic apology for allowing such a provocative and triggering relic to continue standing in the middle of Paris.
I don’t know. “I Love Paris”?
The Church will endure to the end of time, but not necessarily everywhere. Things haven’t been going so well in North Africa for a bit. Sometimes cultures keep heading towards bottom, and when they reach bottom there they stay.
Its dead, Jim. Just like the French to take a defeat and call it a victory,
If this is a victory, Id hate to see what defeat looks like.
Au revoir to the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral.
