Doesn't look good - seems to have taken hold of the building and looks like a very difficult site to access, get the fire out.
Hopefully there are no casualties. While extensive damage to the building would be awful, a loss of life would be worse.

If this is arson it’s utterly disgusting.

If it is accidental it’s utterly tragic.

Reported to be related to the renovation works.
Beautiful building in a stunning area.

Hope the fire is not too destructive but it looks bad.

From the pictures I've seen it looks a serious situation and the fire looks to the spreading on the roof.

It's totally destroyed, I'm not sure the spire won't collapse.

Oh, that's so sad. A place steeped in layers and layers of history.

It's done a stint as a Temple to Reason.

Terrible, hope it was accidental and not deliberate.

Also hope the Sapeurs Pompiers got there quickly, unless they were on an anti Macron slow down.

Sad to think of all the beautiful medieval architecture destroyed now. Vive La France.

Listening to BBC five live and the presenter is saying a good bit of the roof is gone.

So much reason they put thousands to death by guillotine for the Goddess of Reason they installed on the altar.
