Deyrolle's fire

Maybe this has been already posted but I was just looking up the hours of Deyrolle so we could take our grandson there in March and sadly I've learned that they've had a terrible fire. Details http://www.deyrolle.com/magazine/

That is very sad news for me. It's always a place I go to when in Paris. I have butterflies and insects from there, framed on my wall. Is there an English version somewhere to read of this tragic event?

Distressing -- its one of my favorites spots in Paris.

My favorite phrase in the second link (the English language link) is about the surviving dead animals -- a classic oxymoron.

If you click on the picture of the fire you'll see a portfolio of pictures after the fire. It's heartbreaking.

It does appear from the website that the store is open. The fire was on the upper floor, but the ground floor is open for business.
