Notre Dame Cathedral Fire: Assessing the damage | DW News

French President Emmanuel Macron is vowing to rebuild the Notre Dame Cathedral, after a fire destroyed much of the 12th-century church late. Firefighters say it is now completely extinguished. Images of the inside of the cathedral show how extensive the damage was, with a gutted roof and the collapse of the spire. Firefighters did manage to save the bell towers and outer walls. Investigators are now beginning to probe what caused the fire, as people around the world lament the devastation of an architectural jewel and symbol of France’s heritage. Hundreds of millions of Euros have already been pledged from various corners of France and the world for the reconstruction of the Paris icon.
