Been exchanging some messages with other IAP members about this.

A true tragedy, (as is the loss of much older historical sites in Syria, Iran, Turkey, etc). No matter our beliefs, this is our/the world's heritage.

The roof and spire will be rebuilt within 5 years (I predict), but the artwork inside is lost forever. The rose windows, crypt and other period pieces date back to the 12'th century. Hopefully much will survive.

Renovation (current/ongoing "cleaning" in the Sistine Chapel.) is difficult. Rebuilding is easier (roof/spire). Replication is often not possible (art work from 600 years ago with different materials and techniques).

Very sad to see.

Tragedy all the way around. I have been watching this a good portion of the day since I am at work anyway. We have been discussing logistics for fighting a fire similar to this. Scaffolding makes an interesting twist in the scenario. I have been expecting the collapse of i all day.

I have been in the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. I didn't know they had another in Notre Dame.

Has been on ongoing endeavor. Latest effort started in 1981. They evaluate sections annually, then progress as needed.

It is the one at the Vatican in Rome. It is pretty amazing looking at it.

Didn't see anything on how it started. Anyone have any ideas or info on this?

Probably either caused by the people doing the restoration, or by faulty wiring that had not yet been replaced. The wiring was apparently old and badly in need of replacement. Started in an attic. The reason there was so much damage, was they couldn't figure out where the smoke was coming from for almost 20 minutes.

Possibly a short in the elevator that the construction people put up. No construction people were there at the time of the fire, though. fire alarms didn't go off properly, apparently.
