Cause not known. Speculation that renovation works might have sparked the blaze.
They can't get to the top of the fire, it's something like 70 metres high. Most effective hoses will only go up to around 8th floor something like 30 metres. Plus the roof was known as the forest due to the amount of wooden beams and rafters it took 52 acres of a mediëval forest to make. So likely it would go up like a tinder box. The only question now is accident or arson?Emanuel Macron is on his way to visit the site.
Not sure more hot air is helpful...
Maybe somebody can explain to me whether it makes sense to spray water onto the top of the fire.
Isn't that the hottest part and the water will instantly evaporate?
Helicopters are also used for a more "precise" option.I read somewhere people were asking why they can't get a plane to drop water on it. Yes - let's use our precision guided water from X metres high and drop it on a dense urban area.
To be fair to the Parisians, they do smoke their cigs with a certain je ne sais quoi.Given the number of parisians I saw smoking everywhere I’d suggest the most likely cause is some worker flicking a butt somewhere.
I imagine Civilization remade through the prism of inter-sectionality, post-colonial theory and cultural Marxism would be a very ghastly series indeed!I remember that series when it first came out. I have the book too. So much better than the recent BBC remake that was intended to be more ‘inclusive’ and politically correct.
