Yours is a valid point, now that you mention it.
If it turns out this fire was intentionally set (which we will likely never know), then the EU and the globalist regime are far more evil than even I contemplated.
I do have to say though, reconstruction of a building like this does involve a lot of trades which could cause fires (i.e. welding, cutting, grinding and flammable chemicals, paints and strippers). And, given the lack of modern fire protection systems and the age of the structure itself, it's not hard to picture how a fire could be easily started by accident.
Again though, if this turns out to be an intentional act to create an international distraction I will be truly...afraid...of what they will try next!
PARIS -- A criminal terrorist investigation has been opened in Paris following the discovery of a car parked near Notre Dame Cathedral with seven gas canisters and pages written in Arabic inside, prosecutors said. The Paris prosecutor’s office revealed Wednesday that a couple it described as radicalized - a 34-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman - was arrested a day earlier and transferred to Paris to be questioned in the case.
The car found near the famous cathedral on Sunday morning had its license plates removed and hazard lights on. That evening, its owner went to the police to report that his radicalized daughter was missing but without saying his car had also disappeared, the prosecutor’s office said.
Officials told the Reuters news agency that the 19-year-old woman was known to police for wanting to go to Syria. The man and woman arrested in a highway rest area near the southern town of Orange on Tuesday already were known by French security services for their alleged links with “radical Islamism,” prosecutors said.

Trotskyist? As if Operation Gladio wasn't a thing.
Macron isn't a socialist.
Mr. Heitz said most people had been evacuated before the fire was found because a Mass had started in the cathedral. Not long after the doors were shut, witnesses said, smoke could be seen rising from the spire. Video showed that scaffolding around the base of the spire, part of extensive renovations that were underway, was one of the first places to visibly catch fire.
A second alarm was triggered at 6:43 p.m., and a fire was found under the roof in a network of wooden beams, many dating from the Middle Ages, that is nicknamed “the forest.” Mr. Heitz said that investigators

I do not really see this as a chaos producing event though do you?
