According to the KJ, a group of students from Gardiner Area High School were some of the last people to see the historic Notre Dame Cathedral before it burned.

Amber Dostie, the chairwoman of the school's social studies department, says they were not scheduled to see the cathedral as part of their trip.  On a whim, they walked to the cathedral on Sunday afternoon, narrowly missing the chance to take a tour.

She was able to get this video of the fire:

Dostie is part of a group of 28 students and 15 adults touring France and Spain.
