    It is tragic and sad, it lasted over 800 years but then, modern man decided it needed fixed.

    It's "Notre Dame", and yes, it's a tragedy.

    Easy to be an armchair quarterback but as soon as I saw the picture with the scaffolding it's obvious some idiot contractor decided "we don't need no stinkin' fire extinguishers when we work". A true tragedy that was very easily preventable.

    Same thing happened with Windsor Castle. They were cleaning the wall tapestries with a flammable solvent, someone knocked over the light stand, bulb broke and ignited the solvent. Decided to try to use available fire extinguishers without success and then finally called the fire department who arrived after the roof structure was fully in flame.

    Morons.
