The spire in the middle the roof of Notre-Dame Cathedral burning and falling on Monday April 15th 2019.

A fire was first detected at 6:16 pm in Notre-Dame and broke in earnest in the wooden beams supporting the Cathedral’s roof at 6:43 pm on Monday April 15th 2019. The church’s roof was a raging inferno by 7:10 and the spire designed by Viollet-le-Duc fell at 7:50 pm, releasing ever-more frightful clouds of grey and yellow smoke. You may see all the pictures I took that Monday night on FaceBook, here, here, here and the day after here.
