Newly Released Photos Show Extensive Damage Inside Notre-Dame Cathedral After Fire

The first and second richest men in France are still slugging it out through cultural capital

Flames and smoke are seen billowing from the roof at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on April 15, 2019.

The famed white marble sculpture of the Virgin Mary and Jesus have survived the fire at Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral, with photographs taken after the blaze showing the 1725 Pieta statue "Descent from the Cross" covered in ashes but still intact.

Emmanuel Gregoire told BFMTV Tuesday that a plan to protect Notre Dame's treasures was rapidly and successfully activated. It boasts an estimated 8,000 pipes.

The world watched in shock as parts of the historic Notre-Dame Cathedral went up in flames.

"This is obviously a huge challenge, a historic responsibility", Philippe said.

Speaking after a special Cabinet meeting dedicated to Notre Dame, Philippe said the government will present a bill next week to ensure "transparency and good management" during the reconstruction.

The fire at the 856-year-old cathedral began Monday evening local time.

There were also concerns for the towering mountain of scaffolding that had been erected prior to the blaze for fix work to the 90-metre (295-foot) spire, and that was subjected to intense heat, Plus said. Meanwhile, the cause of the fire is yet to be determined, according to BBC News. Across the globe, people have expressed their support for the French people, and already millions of dollars have been donated to the cathedral's restoration efforts.

"This tragedy is striking all the French people, and beyond that, all those attached to spiritual values", Francois-Henri Pinault, CEO of Kering said in a statement. Other wealthy families vowed to give a further 20 million euros ($22m). "That being said, we would be more than happy to lend our expertise in any way that we can to help with these efforts".

While Notre Dame can certainly be rebuilt, it will never really be the same place again.

Parliament President Antonio Tajani invited European Union lawmakers, meeting in Strasbourg, France, to contribute their day's salary to help finance reconstruction.

A spokesman for Paris's firefighters said on Tuesday morning, "the entire fire is out". Mateusz Morawiecki said on Twitter that "Poland knows what it means to have a cultural heritage lost in fire". The building was undergoing renovation work at the time of the fire on Monday. He added that the roof restoration work would have to use new technologies.

Addressing the nation last (Tuesday) night, he said: "We have so much to rebuild, so yes, we will rebuild the Notre-Dame cathedral, even more handsome, and I want that to be completed from now - until five years".

The cathedral is still being monitored closely by firefighters and experts to determine how much damage the structure suffered and what needs to be dismantled to avoid collapse.

Officials consider the fire to be an accident, possibly as a result of the restoration work at the cathedral.
