    Notre Dame Catches Fire

    "The cause is not yet clear, but officials say that it could be linked to renovation work.

    A major operation to tackle the blaze is under way at the 850-year-old Gothic building, but the cathedral's spire and roof have collapsed.

    Last year, the Catholic Church in France appealed for funds to save the building, which was crumbling.

    French President Emmanuel Macron, who is on his way to the scene, said his thoughts were with "all Catholics and all French people."

    "Like all of my countrymen, I am sad tonight to see this part of us burn."

    Mr Macron has cancelled his planned speech to the nation following the fire, an Élysée Palace official said."

    Sad to see this happen.

    We were looking at it through the windows of the lab. At least it looked even better when on fire. Also thanks to the number of tourists that come every day and the fact that the Church and the Vatican will pitch in it's likely that it will be rebuilt successfully

    The Christian god must have been unsatisfied with their work.
