A serious fire has caused one of the towers to collapse.
On the news now.
What a crying shame for this beautiful old building.

There a few years ago, sad. See that idiot Trump has suggested putting the fire out with flying water tankers!

Tragic news for the city of Paris.

Hope they can save some of the treasures held within.


Rings bells with the fire in The Glasgow School of Art which was also under a major refurbishment.

Very sad, all that history literally up in smoke?

On the bright side, no loss of life

Fix a poor handbrake; DIY ABS diagnostic unit; Loan of the spanner needed to change the CDT belts; free OBD diagnostics +MAF; Correct Bosch MAF cheap; DVB-T install in an ex-hi-line system; DD install with a HK amp; FBH servicing.

I've taken a vow of poverty. To annoy me, send money.

Firefighters reckon they've got it under control and the main structure has been saved.
