The spire of the the 12th-century cathedral collapsed Monday night as the blaze ravaged the wooden structure supporting the roof, but the façade and towers were saved along with many of the cathedral’s valuable art works.
Firefighters on Tuesday said the blaze was now "under control". Over 700 million euroshave already been donated for reconstruction from French companies and individuals all over the world.
Authorities believe the fire was an accident, likely linked to a major renovation project.
French officials and experts are inspecting the site to determine its structural integrity, with efforts to stabilise the site expected to take approximately 48 hours.
