  • How to help rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral

French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed that the Unesco World Heritage site will be rebuilt "even more beautifully", but some experts have warned that reconstruction could take decades.

"We will rebuild it". He announced a worldwide fundraising campaign that will raise money for the cathedral's restoration.

"What I remember is, walking towards the cathedral, was this ball of flame", he said.

The fire at the 856-year-old cathedral began Monday evening local time.

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

"Nothing indicates this was a deliberate act", Heitz told reporters, adding that 50 investigators had been assigned to what he expected to be a "long and complex" case.

Firefighters are still examining damage and shoring up the structure after the fire collapsed the cathedral's spire and destroyed the roof. The famed bell towers survived the blaze.

Almost 400 firefighters fought the blaze for more than nine hours, the department said.

There were no deaths, but two police officers and one firefighter were injured, officials said.

The Paris prosecutor's office said it was treating the fire as an accident, ruling out arson and possible terror-related motives, at least for now.

Flames and smoke are seen billowing from the roof at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on April 15, 2019.

From around the world, more than $700 million in private donations poured in for reconstruction, while Parisians and tourists lined the banks of the Seine, bearing witness from a distance after police closed bridges that give access to the site.

As of Tuesday morning, it had raised $237,857.

Francois Pinault, the billionaire CEO of Kering group, offered 100 million euros ($113m) towards repairs, while his rival in luxury goods, CEO of the LVMH conglomerate Pierre Arnault, later pledged 200 million euros ($226m). The company could also provide 3D mapping engineers that have been working on improving the Apple Maps platform since its launch several years ago.

A church community in Northumberland County is reflecting on the massive fire that tore through Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Monday as it has a very personal connection to how the people of Paris are feeling today.

While some of the large paintings at Notre-Dame could not be taken down in time, the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, said at the scene of the fire that a number of the many artworks in the cathedral had been rescued and were being put in safe storage.

"My thoughts and prayers are with those who worship at the Cathedral and all of France at this hard time", the queen said in a letter to Macron.

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