On 15th April 2019 a large fire started in Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. As the flames spread, and smoke began billowing out, people began to realise that a fire had started in the cathedral. Inside many were unaware, as they thought the fire alarm was a drill, and they couldn’t see the fire.

Despite the terrible fire, the valiant efforts of the firefighters managed to save most of the cathedral. The fire caused extensive damage to the roof, and estimates predict that it could take up to twenty years to repair. A fundraising campaign to restore Notre Dame has so far raised over €1 billion. Investigations into the cause have determined that the blaze wasn’t deliberately lit. Most likely it started from an electrical fault or cigarette butt on the roof, which was undergoing renovations.

The French Prime Minister recently announced an architectural design competition to create a new spire. In the heat of the blaze the spire collapsed into the cathedral, because its lead supports melted away. Overall the firefighters did a magnificent job of saving most of the structure and priceless artifacts inside. It’s not every day that you get a call to save an iconic building like Notre Dame, and given the circumstances they produced an outstanding result.
