Apparently the spire has collapsed and they're struggling to save the bell towers

Did hear about this.
Shame to happen to such an old historical monument.

I agree, I have no interest whatsoever in any religion but churches (and other places of worship) are often very impressive pieces of architecture and it is shame when they are damaged like this

I've spent a lot of time in Paris (my wife lived there for a year while at Uni) and, like someone above, am not religious, but it was very upsetting to see this fantastic building ablaze. I was there in November with some friends.

I hope M Macron's appeal for funds allows it to be rebuilt, but it'll obviously never be the same.

The big company's of France are now offering to put some big money up
Sadly this reflects the difference .If it was the UK no rich people would donate and all us normal people would have to donate £10 each through just giving !and hope there would be enough restoration money

I hope this isn't getting too close to discussing religion but shouldn't the Catholic Church be paying? It's their building isn't it?

Would expect the contactors insurers to get a big bill, if it turns out to be an error on their part (no knowlege/specuation, it's a line of enquiry is all)
