Wonder about the cause. Intentional or not?

I think the French fight fires by running away from them.

First glimpsed at the headline and figured it was here in Indiana.


Sucks though.

From the pictures it looks like the equipment cannot reach the top to get water inside, something my dad worried about years ago with the tall building in Alb.

Finally got a hose on the damn thing for all the good it'll do.

Agree, it doesn't look like they've got anything that can reach far enough to get water inside.

Fox showing first sign of water on the fire. Looks like a bucket truck at max elevation, and it still isn't tall enough to do much

There are some crews in/on the building. Read on another forum that the configuration of the cathedral makes it extremely difficult to get equipment in where it's needed.

I thought they might have been trying to get art on the bottom floors out before throwing thousands of gallons of water at it. :shrug:

French worker. Probably dropped his cigarette in a rag bucket.

Maybe it will do enough to keep from burning more of the city

Sadly I think they will need a broom and pressure washer.

This is a real loss.

800 year old wood burns very well
