just saw this. initial thinking is its tied to some of the repair work going on.
I'm in agreement. Construction induced fire somehow.

I'm watching on CNN and it's worse and you can't see any firemen trying to fight it, at least from the tv views. The entire Spire is engulfed at this point.

Sad. It must have wooden trusses to burn like that. I used to assume most of those old buildings were made of stone but after touring some really old cathedrals I was surprised at how much wood they used in them.
