Incêndio destrói a catedral de Notre-Dame em Paris

April 16, 2019 - Um grande incêndio, que se julga acidental e ligado a trabalhos de restauro na catedral de Notre-Dame, devastou o monumento gótico com 850 anos.

The 850-year-old Gothic building's spire and roof have collapsed but the main structure, including the two bell towers, has been saved, officials say.

The cause of the fire is not yet clear, but officials say it could be linked to the renovation work that began after cracks appeared in the stone.

Sixteen statues that were part of Notre Dame’s now destroyed spire are safe and unscathed after being removed as part of a renovation just days ago.

The $6.8m renovation project marked the first time the statues had been removed in over a century, according to the Associated Press.

The last time the cathedral suffered major damage was during the French Revolution.
