Notre Dame: it could get even worse. "If the bells fall, so will the tower."

There are many pictures of the Notre Dame fire at this Twitter account.

UPDATE: Head of the Paris Fire Brigade Jean-Claude Gallet says 2/3 of the cathedral's roof is gone, but the most precious art has been safeguarded.

He says the risk is now centered on the North tower. If the bells fall, so will the tower

Fire coming through the stained glass windows. Nearly a thousand years of history going up in flames. Completely heartbroken #Notredame

2. The pompiers have to be wary of a collapse of the stone walls.

At some point, they'll have to back off and let it go. So far, there have been no fatalities.
