SHOCKING: Paris Notre Dame Cathedral burnt to ashes in an Hour

As per report French President Emmanuel Macron vowed to rebuild Notre Dame with help from the international community after a devastating fire gutted the famous Catholic cathedral last night. Meanwhile when speaking just hours after the roof of the 850 year old building caved in, Macron said a national fundraising campaign to restore the historic building would be launched today, and he called on the world's 'greatest talents' to help.

Reportedly the French leader credited the 'courage' and 'great professionalism' of firefighters with sparing Notre Dame's spectacular Gothic facade and two landmark towers from being destroyed, saying 'the worst has been avoided'. Furthermore much of the UNESCO World Heritage landmark building was devastated. Apparently the 300ft tall Gothic spire collapsed into the embers early in the blaze to pained cries of 'Oh my God' from locals transfixed by the unfolding scene. A grief stricken Paris Archbishop Michel Aupetit said at the scene 'We have been dealt a knockout blow’.

Moreover the blaze broke out just before 7pm local time in a roof area undergoing around £6m of renovations and the fire service said last night they believed it was an accident, but investigations were continuing. Apparently more than 400 firefighters battled the flames, which quickly spread along the roof structure, causing burning timbers to collapse onto the ceiling of the vault below. Perhaps some of that collapsed into the aisle however the cathedral's Twitter account declared the damage inside was less than feared, in a message ending 'Allelujah'.
