I didn't realize this job had a fire safety marshal. Wouldn't they have seen the arsonist, and be able to put the fire out? :?

I'm not ruling anything out, I just think it would best to wait and see before we start pointing fingers, guessing, and spreading rumors. The world had enough problems at the moment, we don't need to fuel any fires. The tone of this thread alone tells me when any official cause is released, it will be wrong, and not accepted. I'll wait for more details before I throw blame around.

Maybe a worker told the media "Pasquale did it. Pascale is an idiot, it was probably him." Unless we were there, we don't have much to go on at this point.

Considering the problems in France right now, with protests against the government, I find this fire to be VERY suspect.

think you guys should stop speculating... :roll:
highly doubt they will ever know what exactly happened
after all the evidence if any has been burnt away.... :(
this is very sad and unfortunate event.
some need to read forum rules....
rule # 1 Political, religious, ideological posts are not allowed.
you want to talk about the great beautiful structure that's fine just don't be bashing religions
because that's uncalled for and exactly how dumb sh*t in the wold start, not sure why
some people just cant believe what they like and leave others alone to believe what they want

one would think with such a historic place like Notre Dame with all its rare relics and history
that the fire system and code would have been upgraded long time ago... :(

That's a lot of wood right there, very dry too, a giant tinderbox pretty much.

A word from the wise
I see "Lauchlin was Here," so I'll say no more for now.

Report I read stated the fire alarm went off. No smoke, no smell, no flames, so they calmly started removing precious artifacts.
45 minutes after the first alarm sounded, the first fire truck arrived, by then, the roof was on fire, etc. This truck did not have
tall enough ladders to extinguish the roof. A taller ladder truck took, one more hour to arrive, which the smaller unit kept dousing
the towers as best it could.

what a lot of people don't realize but i'm sure they do now is that Notre dame cathedral
is somewhat situate on an island of sort, so it made the situation very hard for fire crews
to get there and yes they needed fire cannons, the cathedral is 69 m (226 ft) tall, the fire personal
did an amazing job considering all the circumstances and difficulty they faced there all heroes...
