Apparently the renovation included 250 tons of lead on the roof. That will have destroyed much of what lies below the roof.

So sad. Most important thing though, were there any people trapped inside?

Yes when I was watching earlier it was just the roof and then within a very short space of time the spire caught fire and then was gone.
In my lifetime.
