      Horribly telling photo: http://www.leparisien.fr/informations...

      It appears that those injured were workers cutting pipe in the basement who possibly ignited a gas cylinder.

        Oh wow, that picture makes me want to cry. We were there for the first time last May, and vowed it wouldn't be the last. It was such a unique experience! Here's hoping all the injured recover & that Mme Acabo can rebuild & reopen. I think she might whither away without her shop - she has such passion for her craft.

          Let's hope Mme Acabo is ok and that l'Etoile d'Or re-opens.
