The supports are even called a "forêt" (or forest) because they're enormous pieces of oak. This "charpente" (or frame) was built from 1,300 oak trees, enough wood to fill more than 21 hectares of land

21 hectares of 200+ year old dried out wood is an insane amount of heat.

Update from Reuters:

PARIS (Reuters) - A massive fire consumed Notre-Dame Cathedral on Monday, gutting and destroying the roof of the Paris landmark and stunning France and the world, but firefighters said they had saved the shell of the stone structure from collapse.

That's something, at least.

Well... they saved the Crown of Thorns. Didn't even know that was something they would have saved 1980 something years ago...

I wonder what they will find when they start pulling all the burnt wood off the walls and replacing damaged stone in the floor. Bet there are some goodies tucked away in the cubby holes.

Hrmm...maybe because of the institutionalized child molestation ring within?

Heh...they've had a war on everyone else since time began.

I know and hate that I sound so callous. It's very tragic that these sort of things are happening. The masses should not be "punished" for the actions of the few bad apples within any religion. I know this. The loss of Notre Dame Cathedral is very tragic and I truly hope that this was just an accident.

Not as bad as I thought it would be inside:

Looks like there is more than on roof and the lower one mostly held.

Wonder who gets the fun job of climbing the burnt damaged stack of scaffolding in order to disassemble it?
