Yes the building can be rebuilt (in theory) but the lost artwork, relics, and contents is another issue, lost to history.

Fortunately they had removed a lot of the statues from the spire as part of the renovation just last week.
All the carving in the wood, the stained glass, the artifacts and art, the tapestries, even all of the records would all burn like mad. The place was packed full of one of a kind stuff.

There may have been something that new in the spire but the whole place is lined in wood. There are solid oak beams more than 2' wide. All the walls are covered in 1" wood paneling. The stone walls 8' thick at the base. are You can not even imagine the grandeur of the place. Even the picture do not show how awe inspiring it is.
Depending on where the fire gets to it could smolder for years.

The exteriors is still the amazing part. So light and spindley for stone. And the rose windows, which... I don't know if they made it. And I think much of the vault was stone, so even something of a ceiling left. Maybe. Wood on top for the roof, which is where it caught. And the spire was a chimney, it never stood a chance.

I posted that just before shutting down and leaving work. All the way home I beat myself up hoping to delete it before anyone noticed. Oh well. I'm an asshole.

It's a building. People fuck up. Nothing lasts forever. It's a damn shame but on the up side, no one died.

That is just it though. The stonework looks light and spindly but that is distance and optical illusion. The stone work even in the domes weight thousands of tons. Much of this weight was balanced or braced by all the wood. To much wood burns and the whole thing comes down. It would just take one arch to give way and all that cantilevered pressure is just going to self destruct.

Man it's awful what happened to the Notre Dame Cathedral. A magnificent historical piece. Hopefully the can restore it to the best ability.

Well, yeah. It's heavy as heck. And it doesn't look it. That's hard. That's why it's such an amazing building.


Likely the only way to guarantee if falls is to dump planes-full of water on it...


Now, it just has more interesting history. We'll see if it re-opens. It'll be decades.


I hope the big rose windows made it though. They're under the vault and may stand a chance. Can't tell from any of the stuff released so far.
