A major fire broke out on Monday around 6 pm. at Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, which quickly engulfed and spread through wood structure of the Cathedral.
Parisians and tourists watched as firefighters tried to control the raging flame with broken hearts after the iconic spire and the roof collapsed. “The Forest” which known as Notre Dame’s medieval wooden roof structure was believed to have a massive damage or possibly lost.
Later, firefighters were able to put out the fire. Due to the brief overview, the report stated that the main structure and the rectangular towers, which is its landmark had been saved.
An investigation has been opened by the prosecutor’s office, but police said it began accidentally and may be linked to building work at the cathedral.
“What happened tonight in Paris, in this cathedral is a terrible event,” said the French President Emmanuel Macron. “Notre-Dame is our history, our literature, part of our psyche, the place of all our great events, our epidemics, our wars, our liberations, the epicentre of our lives … So I solemnly say tonight: we will rebuild it together.”
