Re: Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Fire

They had removed the sculptures from the spire before this happened. They supposedly got a lot of the stuff inside....paintings and sculptures, anything they could carry. There's damage to the stained glass, much has been lost there, but it's so well documented surely they can be reconstructed.

Big questions structurally is whether or not the collapsing spire (19th century, wood) did damage or not, and did the cast iron used in previous restorations warp or melt, with the potential of causing additional structural problems. We can only pray that damage is minimal.
