Last night It was heartbreaking to see live coverage of the Notre Dame in real life on fire. The spire collapsed and the roof caved into the famous 850-year-old building. It took around 15 hours for the firefighters to fully extinguish the fire. The good news is that the main stone structure and the two towers survived. The cause of the fire is not yet clear but what is clear is that the cathedral will be fully rebuilt in the near future.
In Second Life last the virtual Paris 1900 region filled up pretty quickly with a large crowd gathering at the virtual Notre Dame. The region was full including the nearby regions.
Teleport to the virtual Notre Dame in Second Life
There is still a large crowd gathering right now inside the virtual Notre Dame as I write this blog post.
