Fire Destroyed The Cathedral Of Notre Dame In Paris, The Central Spire Collapsed

The famous Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris has gone up in flames yesterday. The cause of the fire is not yet clear, but according to the first data, it was due to the renovation work that took place inside the cathedral's roof.

The belfry of the cathedral also collapsed, and the police confirmed that there was no victims at the moment of the dramatic incident.

The firefighters managed to preserve the construction of the building, but it is severely damaged. One of the firefighters was seriously injured in the fire.

The Notre-Dame cathedral was built in the 12th century, and the roof, completely destroyed by the fire, is almost entirely made of wood from the 13th century. Each year, the cathedral receives almost 13 million visitors, more than the famous Eiffel Tower.

The 850-year-old cathedral was caught on fire around seven o'clock in the evening, and soon after the fire broke out, the bell tower of the cathedral collapsed. Sarah O'Connell shot drama on the camera, and the video clip quickly expanded through social networks:

After more than nine hours a representative of the Paris Police reported that the fire was under the control of firefighters.

More than 400 firefighters fought on the fire, and a huge number of important objects were safely brought from the cathedral. According to the latest information, they have saved the alleged remains of the truncated crown, which was on the Jesus Christ's head adn the nape of the Christ's cross, brought in Europe by St. Helena.

The French Ministry also shared the devastation online:

Now, the cathedral is under investigation, while firefighters still cool the construction and extinguish smaller burning areas in the interior.

LIVE: The consequences of the fire at Notre-Dame cathedral:

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron has already announced that an international campaign to raise funds will be launched today to restore the destroyed Notre-Dame cathedral. One of the first was the French billionaire François Pinault, who already promised a 100 million euros aid for reconstruction.

Many Parisians are in shock because one of their most recognizable symbols is destroyed. The fire broke out during the Holy Mass, while most of believers was not disturbed by the sound of the alarm, as they thought it was just a test. It became serious when the policeman approached the priest and explained to him what the situation was.
