Notre-Dame Fire Under Control

unilad

The fire chief in Paris says the city's team have managed to save Notre-Dame Cathedral from complete destruction after battling the flames for hours, France24 reports. 

The spire of the historic Notre-Dame Cathedral had collapsed as the wooden structure supporting the roof was ravaged by the blaze. Flames had spread to one of the cathedral's two towers.

The 12th-century cathedral was in the midst of a massive 20-year renovation project.

Macron vowed that the cathedral would be re-built and said an international fund would be set up to finance it.

Deputy Paris mayor Emmanuel Grégoire said that workers are scrambling "to save all the artworks that can be saved".

By early morning Tuesday firefighters said the blaze was now "under control".
