While the extent of the damage is yet to be fully assessed, the other lingering question regarding the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is how it started in the first place.
Recently, the Cathedral has been undergoing renovations on its centuries-old rooftop, and the police are still investigating the exact cause. Since the fire was set just days after the sentencing in a 2016 Islamic terrorist plot to attack Notre Dame, the French authorities have a responsibility to definitively prove that it was an accident.
Reportedly, there were no workmen on the site when the fire started, but the police are still treating the fire as an accident and not arson.
Considering the uptick in vandalism at French churches, there are legitimate questions surrounding the cause of the fire.
What do you think? Have you ever been on a work site when a fire started?
