Notre Dame Cathedral on Fire
The Telegraph ^ | 15 APRIL 2019 | David Chazan, Paris James Rothwell

Posted on 04/15/2019 10:33:16 AM PDT by Attention Surplus Disorder

Notre Dame cathedral has caught fire, according to the Parisian fire service and eyewitnesses.

Footage posted online shows a large fire engulfing the upper part of the cathedral, with the flames licking around its two bell towers.

A major operation was under way, the fire department added, while a city hall spokesman said on Twitter that the area was being cleared.

Officials in Paris said the fire could be linked to renovation works being carried out at the cathedral.

It comes after France's Saint Sulpice church , used in the filming of Dan Brown’s ‘Da Vinci Code’ thriller, caught fire in March.

This is what happens when muslims swarm your country. The building was targeted by muslims on Easter weekend.

I’m not saying it’s Muslims... But it’s Muslims.

“Officials in Paris said the fire could be linked to renovation works being carried out at the cathedral.”

I’m sure that was it....

What else could it be?

This is, what, the third historic church fire in France in recent months?

It must be coordinated. Some will blame the yellow vests, but it's probably invaders.

Why would muzzies climb up into the attic, where they say this fire started, to start a fire? It increases the chance of getting caught, and a fire set on the main floor would get to the attic anyway. Renovations are more likely the cause.

my first thought - the only muslims that should be admitted to a western country are those who hate the muslim religion and are ready to renounce it and love their new country

The legacy media will have a hard time ignoring this one.

I’m not sure yet if this has anything to do with Muslims.....It’s an old building, could very well be unrelated to Muslims. We’ll see.

My uneducated guess: a construction worker was taking a smoke break somewhere he should not have been.

Because the majority of the wood is there. The majority of the bottom portion is stone.
