Yes, it is observed that the fire is in the scaffolding areaFirefighters told AFP that the blaze could be linked to planned maintenance and restoration of the building
Yes, other people are noticing too that there doesn't seem to be many fire workers… strange.I would have expected more fire workers at the scene, even helicopters?
Comments by readers in the MSM (here, for example) also show quite a few people being suspicious: the firemen took 50 minutes to arrive, there were no helicopters, it happens just during Easter week, and right before president Macron was supposed to give a speech about the policies undertaken to respond to the Gilets Jaunes crisis (now postponed till further notice).Yes, other people are noticing too that there doesn't seem to be many fire workers… strange.
And I agree it's seem ridiculous. Another point is the lack of prevention.The fire brigade still cannot access the burning part of the building. They fold up the water lance that had been brought nearby.
