Entire Frame of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is Engulfed In Flames After Spire Collapses
SkyNews via NBC...
One of the world's greatest architectural landmarks is burning...and, apart from its world-renowned architecture (gargoyles, etc.), and the reality that the Cathedral, itself, was the primary subject of many famous works of art, this sad event will undoubtedly destroy/damage many well-known pieces contained within the building, too.
...Here's the slide show LINK via the Chicago Tribune.
Firefighters are battling a massive blaze at the French capital's iconic Notre Dame Cathedral.
A church spokesman has told French media that all of the cathedral's frame is burning after its spire caught fire and collapsed.
The peak of the church had been undergoing a $6.8 million renovation project.
French media quoted the Paris fire brigade saying the fire is "potentially linked" to the renovation work. The cause remains unknown.
French President Emmanuel Macron has postponed a televised speech to the nation because of the fire...
A devastating day for France, and the entire world.
