    As long as the walls don't collapse in on themselves they can restore the building.

    They've taken a tremendous amount 3-D imagery of it, no clue how likely it is that this could be used to help replace the woodwork.

    The point is that restoration is relative. Can they put a roof on it? Sure. But, they're not going to be able to reproduce the same roof that was on it.

    There are plenty of churches around Europe that have been destroyed and restored. Think the Vatican has enough money to cover it.

    Most all that can be said, has been said, an immense global tragedy. My parents were going in November for their 60th birthday. 850 years, 6 months too short. Pretty sad for them today, pretty sad for the world. Such a tremendous loss.

    I’m sure a criminal investigation will be standard operating procedure. Arson would just be awful.

    A Lutheran church near my parents house burned down a couple of years ago. They were working on part of the sanctuary and a welder took a lunch break and left his torch on. Burned the whole thing to the ground. I'm going to assume something similar happened for now.

    given the fire seemingly started where all the renovation framework was, I think it is safe to assume it was a horrible accident

    A renovation accident/oversight makes sense, but I doubt there’s definitive confirmation of the events that led to the fire yet.

    Nothing close to this scale, and the Vatican does not own the building. It's property of the French government.

    This sucks. Only place I visiting twice while in Paris last month. Such an awesome cathedral with the artifacts and stained glass windows. Hopefully it won’t be completely ruined. The Notre Dame de Reims was badly damaged in the two World Wars and was rebuilt and looks great now so hopefully that will be the case with Notre Dame de Paris.
