    I that despise religion, I really feel for the french people. It's more of a tourist attraction now days, but the history. The wonderful architecture. It's just terrible!

    Hope:

    A spokesman for the fire brigade today raised some hope with a statement: "One can now say that the structure of Notre-Dame was saved from total annihilation." At the same time he announced that a firefighter had been seriously injured.

    "The worst could be prevented," said French President Emmanuel Macron during a visit to the partially destroyed church. The façade of the Gothic cathedral and the two belfries were not collapsed thanks to the courageous commitment of the fire brigade. "The fight has not been fully won yet," Macron said. "We will rebuild Notre-Dame."

    Fire in cathedral under control

    After several hours of firefighting, the fire department has brought the devastating fire in the cathedral Notre-Dame on Tuesday in the early morning hours under control. "The fire is extinguished," said a fire department spokesman in Paris. But there are still some sources of fire that need to be monitored.

    The ghost of Claude Frollo is at it again.

    At least they managed to prevent the worse.

    The fire danger is banned, now one must look how the structure of the building will withstand the heavy fire, also said the Secretary of State in the Ministry of the Interior, Laurent Nunez. Around 100 firefighters were still working in the morning. A firefighter and two policemen had been slightly injured, Fire Chief Jean-Claude Gallet said: "We were very lucky."
