No injuries

Also it looks like they saved the main structure:

The wording on that sounds very disconcerting. Maybe the new cross will represent intersectionality?

Given how many church fires there have been in France of late and how this happened during Easter week, I'd be shocked if this wasn't arson. There's been too many intentional events to just magically believe this one was an accident. Chris Hale of Time Magazine tweeted that a worker there saw some foul play about, then deleted it five minutes later. Who knows.

Looks like most of the artifacts were saved and the building will be restored, which is nice to hear.

The cross still stands. YUGE shout out to Reuters for such a powerful image.

A Time article from two years ago said the place was basically a disaster waiting to happen because of the disrepair it was in and the lack of money going to renovation.

It's very sad.

I saw a tweet about this being a deliberate attack on history and culture within the first hour.

I mean apparently a lot of arson has been going on lately, but this seems more of a case of negligence and/or a renovation accident
