Millions pledged to rebuild Notre Dame

Hundreds of millions of euros were pledged to help rebuild the partially destroyed Notre Dame Cathedral, the 850-year-old Unesco world heritage, as flames that ripped through the Paris landmark were extinguished on Tuesday.

The fire was extinguished some 15 hours after it began on Monday evening, but emergency services said they were still working to douse the hot spots.

“The fire has been extinguished,” fire services spokesperson Gabriel Plus said, adding that around 100 fire-fighters were still at the scene making sure that embers and hot spots were under control and “surveying the movement of structures and extinguishing smouldering residues”.
