    That just doesn't work. It's not like a forest fire. It would have been like a bomb going off and would have leveled the structure. The fire fighters knew what they were doing.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    From Sécurité Civile Fr.

    "Hundreds of firemen of the Paris Fire Brigade are doing everything they can to bring the terrible #NotreDame fire under control. All means are being used, except for water-bombing aircrafts which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral."

    Freeze a lake, fly it over and drop it from a super-huge height.

    Will come down like gentle rain

    So glad the main structure will be saved. It’s an amazing and historic building for sure.

    I did hear that and that's great news, along with the fact nobody died or had any serious injuries.
