Did not know these cathedrals have flammable roofs, I thought they were mostly stone/masonry. Ouch.

iirc it is the bits that are underneath the roof, all that centuries old wood and the other flammable materials that are the biggest concern

it just sucks.
it doesn't affect anyone unless they're in Paris directly but to just think a nearly thousand year old cathedral just burned to the ground is a major OOF. Yeah, it just sucks.

Word from France a few minutes ago said that they think the remaining part of the cathedral is structurally sound and they are going to rebuild. Some of the windows and art were apparently saved, too.
