Portuguese leaders send condolences to French president on Notre Dame fire

YouTube mistakenly put links to information about 9-11 on videos of the Notre Dame fire

President Emmanuel Macron lamented the destruction of an awe-inspiring building that has embodied the heart of Paris for more than 800 years, CNN reported.

A colossal fire swept through the famed Notre Dame Cathedral in central Paris on Monday, causing a spire to collapse and raising fears over the future of the almost millennium old building and its precious artworks.

Gabriel Plus said that emergency services are now "surveying the movement of the structures and extinguishing smouldering residues".

US President Donald Trump said it was a "terrible, bad fire" and lamented the damage done to the historic cathedral.

The fire, just days before Easter, was met with horror by Parisians and tourists. They finally gained the upper hand as midnight approached.

A firefighter with the NYPD also told the Daily Dot that plan would cause the building to "crumble".

Paris - One of the world's most historic landmarks went up in flames Monday.

"The history, the prayerfulness - for me, it's the center of worship", Baenziger said.

Gasps and cries of "Oh my god" erupted around an hour after the fire first broke out when t he top portion of the church's spire came crashing down.

Archbishop of Miami Thomas Wenski wants parishioners to pray for the people in Paris following the fire.

French prosecutors said it was being now being treated as an accident.

Bitel noted that the cathedral is iconic in the literature, architecture, religion and culture of France.

At the time of publication, there had been no official confirmation of the treasures being saved. He cancelled an important TV speech to the nation because of the fire. "The worst was avoided even if the battle has not been completely won yet and the next few hours will be hard".

U.S. President Donald Trump, speaking at the start of an appearance in Minnesota, spoke of the "terrible, awful fire" that devastated "one of the great treasures of the world".

France's billionaire Pinault dynasty immediately pledged 100 million euros for the reconstruction effort. They were moved to the Louvre in the 1860s, and only "The Visitation" was returned to Notre Dame.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said her thoughts were with the French people and emergency services fighting the "terrible blaze".

"Notre Dame has survived so much over the years, including war and I still can't believe that it is nearly lost to us", she said.

On Twitter, Trump suggested using planes to drop water on the flames. "So, that puts a damper on what we are about to say, to be honest", Trump said.

"All means are being used, except for water-bombing aircraft which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral".

U.S. President Donald Trump in a tweet said: "So awful to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris". "It represents 10 centuries of French history".

"Paris is disfigured. The city will never be like it was before", said Philippe, a communications worker in his mid-30s.

CONSTRUCTION: The building stands on the Île de la Cité, a small island in Paris' Seine River. "This is our deep destiny", he said. The main structure is 211 feet high (64 meters high).

The cathedral suffered "colossal damages", Paris Deputy Mayor Gregoire said. "This church has just done a long term renovation and it was just sad to see what happened in Paris today".

Elena Casas joins TRT World and reports from French capital.

"The Paris fire service is trying to control the flames", Hidalgo wrote on Twitter, asking residents to respect the security cordon thrown up around the site.

Authorities are investigating if renovation work was a factor in starting or spreading the fire, although the cause remains unknown.

Smoke billows as fire engulfs the spire of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Hundreds of people gathered on the bridges of Paris to witness the scene, many filming the images with their smartphones. "The style of architecture and how it was built and the stonework and the stained glass - you couldn't replace it if you wanted to".

"I've never seen that before", he said.

"There will be nothing left", a cathedral spokesman told media.
