Notre Dame fire: Paris laments as Emmanuel Macron commits to rebuilding cathedral

16 April, 2019, 13:14 | Author: Wade Massey

Fox News' Neil Cavuto hung up on Catholic League president Bill Donohue on Monday when he refused to stop speculating that the catastrophic Notre Dame fire could be related to other recent attacks on Catholic churches in Paris. An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire which may be linked to renovation work.

The prosecutors' office said late Monday they have ruled out arson in Monday's fire, including possible terror-related motives for starting the blaze.

What remained was a blackened shell of the monument immortalized in Victor Hugo's 1831 novel "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", a building that had survived nearly 900 years of tumultuous French history.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a Twitter message that Paris firefighters were still trying to limit the fire and urged Paris citizens to respect the security perimeter that has been set around the cathedral.

Firefighters continued working through the night to cool the building and secure the monument and announced on Tuesday morning the fire had been extinguished.

As the spire fell, the sky lit orange, acrid smoke rose in plumes and flames shot out the roof behind the nave.

Notre Dame's bell tower and main structure have also reportedly been spared.

The French Prime Minster stated the worst is over, and the country will rebuild. "The greatest tribute any Christian can make to Notre Dame is to follow Jesus ever more closely and to reflect his love to everyone".

"It took about 100 years to build the building", he said.

Situated on the Ile de la Cite, an island in the Seine river, its architecture is famous for, among other things, its many gargoyles and its iconic flying buttresses.
