Book Excerpt

Excerpt from "Fire At Cathedral of Notre Dame":

"At 7:50 pm Parisians and people across the world on social media, where the fire was being streamed live, watched in horror as the huge spire of Notre Dame collapsed and crashed through the roof down to the Cathedral floor...

"Its crash through the burning roof caused a tremendous fireball to shoot through the attic. The firefighters were crouched behind a wall when the fireball zoomed by and scorched everyone...It was time to retreat.

"Some firefighters wept as they descended. Outside there was a wail of grief, and cries of horror at the sight of the spire collapsing into the church, destroying everything in its path. It seemed the Cathedral was doomed. How could an 850-year-old building withstand the agonizing torture it was being subjected to without totally collapsing?" (p. 254)
