The building was undergoing a 6 million Euro renovation, and now it's engulfed in flames.

Total shock here when we learned about it two hours ago. We have been there so many times. This is just horrible.

Shocking news. I heard about an hour ago they think they have saved the treasure inside but the building is a loss (however, they did save Windsor Castle so ....maybe!).

I have been watching off and on all day. The history that has been lost is incomprehensible. Incredibly sad.

So sad, so shocking to see such beauty being destroyed.
The sunny side today is seeing what all survived. I guess that wooden roof was called the "Forest" for a reason. It lit up like a match box. Praying it can be rebuilt as it is such a special place. I will never forget the hair on your arms standing up feeling I got just walking through the cathedral. Lilly informed me this morning that a billionaire pledged to help rebuild the roof and spire. Sometimes we find good things come out of the bad and bring us all together. Hugs!
