Notre Dame

A major fire has engulfed the medieval cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, one of France’s most famous landmarks.

The 850-year-old Gothic building’s spire and roof have collapsed but the main structure, including the two bell towers, has been saved, officials say.

Firefighters are still working to contain the blaze as teams try to salvage the artwork stored inside.

President Emmanuel Macron called it a “terrible tragedy”. The cause of the fire is not yet clear.

Officials say it could be linked to the renovation work that began after cracks appeared in the stone, sparking fears the structure could become unstable.

More than a simple monument for french people this is one of the symbol of Paris which has been destroyed by the blaze. With 13 millions of tourists every year Notre Dame was most visited than the Eiffel tower.

The french richest people already said that they will invest millions of euros to restaure the cathedral.
