The spire and the entire roof of the Cathedral collapsed as onlookers watched, some gasping, and others silent, in disbelief. A fire had broken through the roof of the Cathedral just before 7 pm, causing what looked like would be widespread damage.
The Notre Dame Cathedral built in the 12th century had celebrated its 850th year in 2013. The church was home to many relics, which also includes beautiful stained glass; it is considered to be one of the most excellent examples of French Gothic architecture. The stone vault and interior remains mostly intact. French President Emmanuel Macron announced they would rebuild the Cathedral. French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault announced a financial gift of 100m towards the rebuilding costs.
The cause of the fire is currently unknown, and the Cathedral had been undergoing renovations. Officials are currently in the process of investigating the cause.
