    Here's what we know about the blaze:

    • The spire was destroyed: Large parts of the roof already appear to have been burned, CNN’s Melissa Bell, who is in Paris, reported. The spire also collapsed during the fire.
    • Firefighters tackled large flames: At least seven firetrucks were trying to tackle the flames, she said. The smell of smoke was emanating through the air and embers were falling from the sky.
    • Cause unknown: The cause of the fire is still unclear.
    • Police kept people away: Police urged everyone to avoid the area, and emergency services pushed people away from the scene.

    Firefighters battled a massive blaze Monday at the French capital's iconic Notre Dame Cathedral that sent ash pouring onto tourists and flames shooting out of the world-famous 12th century monument.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I really hope not. If this isn't an accident of some sort, the implications, and likely very fast followup/response is going to be big and ugly, whether that is more large scale attacks by terrorists or unfounded (or founded) retaliation against perceived perpetrators.

    Having said that, given the times and the climate, it wouldn't surprise me if Rock is right.

    I almost forgot... Easter is one their favorite times to kill people, blow things up, and burn things down.
