Notre Dame to Rebuild after the Fire

People are now recognising that Windsor's photo is one of the last to capture Notre Dame with its spire and roof fully intact.

President Donald Trump during a phone call on Tuesday expressed condolences to French President Emmanuel Macron over the Notre-Dame fire that devastated the Parisian landmark and offered US assistance in rehabilitating the cathedral, the White House said.

Addressing the nation last (Tuesday) night, he said: "We have so much to rebuild, so yes, we will rebuild the Notre-Dame cathedral, even more lovely, and I want that to be completed from now - until five years".

Dating back to the 12th century, Notre Dame has seen several major restoration projects throughout its 850 years overlooking the Seine River.

French King (later Saint) Louis IX brought the relic, which is contained in an elaborate gold case, to Paris in 1238.

Four-hundred-year-old paintings hung high inside were damaged, but emergency workers formed a human chain to whisk gem-studded chalices and other priceless artefacts out of harm's way.

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

Culture Minister Franck Riester told reporters that artworks were being transferred from a storeroom in City Hall to the Louvre on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"If you've been to the cathedral, you'll never forget it", said Mulaire.

A spokesman for Paris firefighters says that "the entire fire is out" at Notre Dame cathedral.

Gregoire also described "enormous relief" at the salvaging of pieces such as the purported Crown of Christ.




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

As the rooster was partially crushed when it fell off the spire, the extent of the damage to its contents is unknown.

Officials consider the fire an accident, possibly as a result of the restoration work at the global architectural treasure.

Some 30 people have already been questioned in the investigation, which the Paris prosecutor warned would be long and complex.

Crowds of tourists and Parisians watched in horror as the roof of the cathedral came crashing down to the ground.

It is not clear what caused the blaze, although fire officials said the blaze may be linked to renovation work at the building.

News that the fire was probably accidental has done nothing to ease the national mourning. (Winnipeg Tribune collection/University of Manitoba Archives) It's unclear whether any of Notre Dame's stained glass survived the fire, but the glass is gone from this opening.

Pope Francis is praying for French Catholics and the Parisian population "under the shock of the bad fire" that ravaged the Notre Dame cathedral.

It was followed on Tuesday by a 200-million-euro pledge from Kering's rival luxury conglomerate LVMH and the family of its founder Bernard Arnault, France's richest person.

"It was the pride and joy of the old city of St. Boniface, which referred to itself as the Cathedral City", said Mailhot.
