“Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame.”
— Andre Finot, Notre-Dame Spokesman
April 15, 2019 Paris, France – French President Emmanuel Macron announced on Monday evening that a fire broke out in an attic of the eight-centuries-old Cathedral of Notre-Dame. The roof and tall spire collapsed and authorities warned that it “is not certain” the blaze can be stopped. The Cathedral’s foundation stone was laid in 1163 by Pope Alexander III and finally opened to the public in 1345.
