The spire is gone. The twin towers are still there. Now, the fire is moved to the interior of the cathedral itself. And it is not. I say out firefighters are dozens of firefighting units are there, and they're hosing down what they can shooting in these hoses into the large area where the planes are coming from. But it's you know, it's ten feet forward nine back and they're doing what they can at this stage. Question is what if anything is going to be left? When all is said and done will it be enough to be rebuilt or not tell me any indication. You know, one thing I I was watching I was glued to the screen there. It seemed that took a long time for any sort of firefighters or hoses. Our water was is that just it was traffic. What was the story with that? Anything? Yeah. We were watching the same thing coming in on feeds. I don't know why it took so long. But initially we were told that. We're trying to get people away get out of there. Save lives. But yeah, it took it took a certainly a considerable amount of time for the first units to arrive in start pumping some water on the on the roof. I I've heard that. They don't know what started that thing yet. Have there been any movement as far as that goes? No. I mean, you know, it's all conjecture even officials in the fire units. They're saying it's probable that. It's related to the renovation work elaborate you've seen elaborate cage, if you will of scaffolding were they were working on the upper sections of the cathedral could've been a spark from the electrical device could have been a flame from maybe some kind of a cutting tool something of that nature, but that's kind of the leading theory granite yet. In terms of you know, firefighting efforts that are going on can you give us a little more? Is it like one one hose four hoses? How many people working on? This thing is helping. Yeah, there's dozens, but it is a large large area. They're looking at. And again, I don't know what they're what they're logic on focusing on which part of the flames, but you can see a number. I'm looking at right now on on a live feed a number of hoses trained on different parts of the players. They've obviously got their orders to work on their own sector. But in the fire is still winning. Tom rivers. ABC news is with us. And Tom I understand that. There was a concerted effort to get as much integrity items out of there as they could you know, anything about that. Yeah. I mean that would be that would be something that would be grab what you can. But having said that during this renovation phase. A lot of the conic items were already taken out any possible silver lining. Some of the things already were out of there in a warehouse before this even kicked off. Tom. What happens next thing? I know you said it's night year going to try to work through the night into tomorrow. Yes. We're gonna work through the night and worked for tomorrow. This is not going to be completed and finished at daybreak. They're going to they're going to be on the site for a number of days, any indication of how long do you think it's going to take contain this thing? No, no. Just dealing with with what's in front of their their noses and again. Yeah. Estimates like that. They don't have anything. We appreciate it Tom air. Thanks, so. Yeah.

You know, I'm not a firefighter or an expert here. But I can't see this getting contained in any large degree at all. It's it looks pretty pretty bleak right now. And again, it's it's nighttime in this fire going pretty good now, just like the interior part of the building scaffoldings everything y'all my wife, and I were there on our honeymoon years back, and we were gonna go and do the tour, but anything organized you just get in line and away you go.
