I didn't see either, but read that both Shep Smith and Neil Cavuto cut off guests who started to suggest arson.

As soon as I heard about the fire I knew it would be announced as an accident, due probably to the reconstruction activities going on. Case closed.


As you know, I totally suspect this will be revealed as Muslim terrorism, but another angle, in addition to the PC disease that completely blinds Leftists, might be the insurance claim. The insurance policy may have a terrorism exemption???

There is another version of the video here, noter the water being sprayed on Notre Dame:

Additionally this video has been making the rounds:

I haven't seen any verification of the accuracy or inaccuracy of any of the videos.

Investigators in Paris said Thursday they believe an electrical short-circuit is most likely the cause behind the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral.

The French judicial police official, who spoke anonymously about the ongoing probe, said investigators still don't have the go-ahead to search the rubble or work in the cathedral because of safety concerns.

Although authorities consider the fire an accident, possibly as a result of restoration work at the global architectural treasure that survived almost 900 years of French history, Paris prosecutor Remy Heitz said earlier this week that the inquiry into what caused the fire would be “long and complex.”

Architect of Restorations Speaks Out

Yet another possible culprit- a computer glitch.

Notre Dame rector: “Computer glitch” possible fire culprit
By SYLVIE CORBET and NICOLAS VAUX-MONTAGNYtoday

PARIS (AP) — A “computer glitch” may have been behind the fast-spreading fire that ravaged Notre Dame, the cathedral’s rector said Friday, as architects and construction workers tried to figure out how to stabilize the damaged structure and protect it from the elements.

The fire burned through the lattice of enormous oak beams supporting the monument’s vaulted stone ceiling, dangerously weakening the building. The surrounding neighborhood has been blocked off, and stones have continued to tumble off the sides of the cathedral since Monday evening’s devastating blaze.

Speaking during a meeting of local business owners, rector Patrick Chauvet did not elaborate on the exact nature of the glitch, adding that “we may find out what happened in two or three months.”

On Thursday, Paris police investigators said they think an electrical short-circuit most likely caused the fire.

The Parisien newspaper has reported that investigators are considering whether the fire could be linked to a computer glitch or related to temporary elevators used in the renovation that was underway at the time the cathedral caught fire. Chauvet said there were fire alarms throughout the building, which he described as “well protected.”

Charlotte Hubert, president of a group of French architects who specialize in historic monuments, told BFM television that experts plan to spread a custom-made peaked tarpaulin across the cathedral’s roof, with enough space to also shield workers rebuilding the frame.

I found out something interesting this morning while listening to the Hugh Hewitt show. According to Hugh, whom I trust as to knowledge, Notre Dame is owned by the French government, not the Catholic Church. The French, as we know, have had a rocky relationship with the Christian religion, particularly Catholicism, since the French Revolution. In 1905, according to Hugh, the French passed a law which transferred ownership of certain churches, including Notre Dame, from the Church to the government. I don't know how many churches the law covered, but Notre Dame was among them.

The reason I find this important is because I am very reluctant to leave the future of the church in the hands of a bunch of French secularist. OTOH, the church is so iconic perhaps pressure will prohibit the secularist from doing too much damage. I hope so.

Very interesting. Not that I'm an expert on Notre Dame, but the church was a secular museum, not a church. It had become, just a building. Its ownership by the secularists in the French government tells us all that the building itself was a secular icon. I consider it extremely sad that we lost it in this fire. I couldn't watch the news of its demise because I was so sad. But let's not pretend it was a place of worship anymore. When I toured Notre Dame, it was a Sunday and a small group of ~30 people were conducting a worship service led by a priest. We were asked to quietly pass through.

Was it really ever such a place? just asking.
