How to help rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral

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

Mailhot recalls that people rescued items from the St. Boniface Cathedral as the roof burned, and apparently the same thing happened at Notre Dame.

A devastating fire ravaged the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Monday evening.

French President Emmanuel Macron told the nation that Notre Dame would be rebuilt within a time frame of five years.

"We remember with grateful hearts the tolling of Notre Dame's bells on September 12, 2001, in solemn recognition of the tragic September 11th attacks on American soil". Brought to Paris by King Louis IX in the 13th century, it is purported to have been pressed onto Christ's head during the crucifixion.

A plan to safeguard the masterpieces and relics was quickly put into action after the fire broke out.

Some of the works were being transferred from City Hall to the Louvre, where they will be dehumidified, protected and eventually restored.

He said the cathedral's greatest paintings will be removed starting Friday.

Finland's opposition Social Democratic Party to become biggest in parliament, says Yle
His Centre Party now languishes in fourth place in the polls, having recently been overtaken by the Finns Party. During the election campaign, all parties expressed unwillingness to join a government with the Finns Party.

A spokesman for Paris firefighters says that "the entire fire is out" at Notre Dame cathedral. Not only do they have a home near the cathedral but the couple were also married nearby in a civil ceremony 10 years ago.

At dawn, the twin 69-metre towers swarmed with building specialists and architects.

The 850-year-old cathedral is a well-known tourist destination for Japanese people and many of those who were planning to visit the architectural, cultural, and religious landmark during Golden Week are devastated by Monday's fire, travel agents said.

Investigators interviewed witnesses overnight and began speaking with employees of five different construction companies that were working on the monument, said public prosecutor Remy Heitz.

The exact cause of the blaze wasn't known, but French media quoted the fire brigade as saying it was "potentially linked" to a 6 million euro ($6.8 million) renovation project on the church's spire and its 250 tons of lead.

News that the fire was probably accidental has done nothing to ease the national mourning. Many tours to France had incorporated Notre Dame on their itinerary.

Van der Bellen wrote on Twitter that Notre Dame is "an important symbol of our common European culture" and posted a picture of the French flag and the European Union flag flying in Vienna.

Multi-billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault and oil company Total have also pledged 100 million euros (£87m) each.

The fire has also promoted fundraising among Americans, with New York-based French Heritage Society and the Go Fund Me crowdsourcing platform among the first to offer help.

According to one tally, the amount pledged crossed $700 million.

Sadness which Mulaire now sees Parisians feeling in the aftermath of this latest blaze, a blaze which has many cherishing memories of seeing the Notre Dame Cathedral.

The 12th-century church is home to the organ, relics, stained glass and other works of art of incalculable value, and is a leading tourist attraction. But no one can tell whether it has been damaged by water or will need to be restored.

"We will rebuild it".

"Now I wish I had", she tweeted.
