Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An historic blaze ... note the date. Throughout history there have been many destructive fires ... I recall a blaze in 1972 of the St. Rombouts cathedral in Mechelen in Belgium.

So often large fires start through carelessness on roof repair work. This blaze started mid-ship where scaffolding was in place for renovation. I just don't understand where such a precious monument is at stake, the precautionary measures are insufficiënt.

Fortunately no lives were lost ... a monumental loss, so unnecessary. 😢

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
