    Notre Dame Cathedral is burning down

    The spire collapsed several hours ago. Surprised there was no thread on this, RM board used to be a hive of activity.

    Re: Notre Dame Cathedral is burning down

    It seems very odd that reporting (at least on the BBC which I've seen) seems to suggest that it took almost an hour for the fire service to respond with more than a single engine/hose.

    It would be unusual, I would have thought, for there not to be a disaster plan in place for such a national monument - unless sacrificing the bulk of the building in order to concentrate efforts on the protection of the towers was the plan; but that seems pretty weak.
