Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems to have been mainly the ancient wooden roof that was literally burned to the ground. At least some of the art works and relics inside were moved to safety. If the building is still fundamentally structurally sound, replacing the roof with look alike non-combustible materials should be possible. However if the structural integrity of the building has been compromised, the sky is the limit as to what it might cost to put things right. It might sound heretical right now, but there might be better ways of spending that money...
