Notre Dame fire out, its treasures intact but rebuilding challenges ahead

Notre-Dame Cathedral Watch: Senior figure calls on French Muslims to donate to Notre Dame reconstruction fund

Now that the fire is out and we know that many of Notre Dame's precious relics have been saved, we can marvel at the 400 pompiers - or firefighters as we call them in English - who risked their lives running into the cathedral, uncertain whether the burning roof above them would collapse. "Notre Drame" (Our Drama) said the headline on the front of the French newspaper Libération, alongside a photo of the moment the cathedral's spire collapsed.

Several of France's business elite have already pledged money to help, including a 200 million euros ($226 million) donation from Bernard Arnault and 100 million from Francois Pinault, heads of luxury goods groups LVMH and Kering respectively.

This screen shot made on April 16, 2019 shows French President Emmanuel Macron addressing the nation on French private TV channel TF1 during which he vows to rebuild Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral within five years, a day after a fire erupted in the 850-year-old landmark.

Reinsurer Swiss Re said works of art in buildings such as the cathedral are generally not insured because they are often priceless.

"If it were me, I'd want the memory", she said.

"Notre Dame is one of the world's great treasures, and we're thinking of the people of France in your time of grief", Obama said.

Fournier, who is in his 50s and now serves as the chaplain for the Paris Fire Brigade, is no stranger to disasters - he tended to the injured and prayed over the 89 people killed in the 2015 Bataclan attack.

Notre-Dame was in the midst of renovations and industry sources said the contractor would have its own liability policy.

While some officials were concerned over the sudden change of tourist destinations due tot he Notre Dame fire, the main tour plan offered at H.I.S. was not "significantly impacted" as it does not specifically decide which landmarks to visit.

However, investigators will be interviewing people who worked on the cathedral's roof, where the flames first started.

The Archbishop of Paris Michel Aupetit told RMC radio, "Notre-Dame was destroyed but the soul of France was not". The St. Boniface Cathedral fire was sparked in the attic by one of the workers repairing the roof.

The cost of a likely multi-year restoration project could itself take a year to become clear, industry experts said.

But he said that the cathedral - like many others in France - did not have automatic sprinklers in the wooden framework of the roof, and that its attic space was not compartmentalised with fire-breaking walls, which could have prevented a blaze from spreading.

"Now I wish I had", she tweeted.

He pledged that Notre-Dame would be rebuilt. A 100m crane lowered the copper statues representing the 12 apostles and four evangelists onto a lorry.
