A monumental fire destroyed the old Notre-Dame Cathedral in the center of the French capital of Paris, causing its roof and tower to fall.



Firefighters surrounded the historic 12th century cathedral building with its distinctive design, carved facades and stained-glass windows.

The name of the historical cathedral was associated with the famous French writer Victor Hugo’s “The Notre Dame”, which is visited by more than 13 million tourists a year.

Crowds of Parisians and foreign tourists rushed to see the historic building at the moment of its burning and attempts to extinguish the fire.

On Monday evening, French President Emmanuel Macaron vowed to rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral after the fire that came on its roof and destroyed its tower.

Macron told reporters “Tonight I tell you that we will be together to rebuild this cathedral,”  outside the Notre Dame Cathedral as flames were still burning in the wreckage of its roof.

He said joint efforts will be announced at the national level on Tuesday to help finance the restoration.

Macaron praised the “great courage” of the firefighters, saying France should be proud of “all those who fought so that the worst will not happen … they are soldiers fighting.”
