  • The world was shocked by news yesterday of a major fire at the famed Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris France

A second alarm went off at 6:43 p.m., by which time the roof underneath the spire was on fire, he said.

"We assume they have not been damaged by the fire but there will eventually be damage from the smoke", Riester said.

The official said investigators had now questioned about 30 people, who were mostly employees working on the renovation of the monument.

Almost 1 billion has already poured in from ordinary worshippers and high-powered magnates around the world to restore the fire-ravaged Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, after the French president set a controversial five-year deadline to get the work done.

"The task is - now the risk of fire has been put aside - about the building, how the structure will resist", said Junior Interior Minister Laurent Nunez in front of the cathedral.

"We will rebuild the cathedral even more beautifully and I want it to be finished within five years", Macron said from the Elysee Palace.

In a live, televised, presidential address to the nation, he vowed the cathedral would be even more lovely than it was before.

"Notre Dame is a place where the soul of Paris resonates: The history of our city is linked to that of the cathedral", Hidalgo said on Twitter.

"All the 18th-century steles, the pietas, frescoes, chapels and the big organ are fine", he said.

The Vatican on Monday expressed "shock and sadness" at the fire that caused extensive damage to a cathedral that is "a symbol of Christianity in France and in the world".

Asquith also added that the Queen had spoken of the incident as a distressing example of Britain's past history with India. The Jallianwala Bagh massacre is one of the darkest chapters in the history of India's freedom struggle.


However, there are concerns that even the $1 billion pledged so far may not be able to replace what was lost in the blaze - it also depends on the availability of materials.

"One of the extraordinary things about Notre Dame was that.an estimated 13,000 trees had been felled to create this delicate timber infrastructure", he said.

Guillermo Rein, professor of fire science at Imperial College in London, praised the work of the French firefighters. "Or in fact is that the great compromise you'd make?" "But perhaps it can't be recreated as it was".

Czech President Milos Zeman also offered the expertise of his nation's restoration specialists, including teams that work at the Prague Castle, the historic seat of Czech presidency, which includes St. Vitus Cathedral, a Gothic architectural masterpiece.

"The burning of the Notre Dame cathedral has again made us aware that we are bound by something more important and more profound than treaties".

"It's a very deep sadness". In an interview with the Associated Press, he noted that the cathedral's roof can not be rebuilt exactly as it was before the fire because "we don't, at the moment, have trees on our territory of the size that were cut in the 13th century". "It was hard to imagine this could ever happen".

Meanwhile, major travel agency H.I.S. Co says the reservation status for Paris since the beginning of January has risen to eighth most popular from 11th place past year. He pledged that Notre-Dame would be rebuilt.

One of the group's members, Ron Ivey, said he was "heartbroken".

The medieval Catholic cathedral is one of the most visited historical monuments in Europe, welcoming millions of people each year.
