As of today, Good Friday, experts are saying the fire was caused by a faulty electrical outlet that shorted out. I also heard that only a few weeks ago the first responders had performed a mock disaster exercise for just such an emergency at the cathedral. The Crown of Thorns was enclosed in locked glass case that required the key to open but an alert firefighter realized there was no time to hunt down the key so just smashed the glass. I still fail to understand why the Crown Of Thorns was there and not in Rome at the Vatican.
