Notre-Dame Cathedral's precious rooster statue found 'battered' in debris

Salma Hayek and Francois Henri Pinault are

This service comes the day after a massive fire tore through Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and the sight of that iconic building burning really hits home.

Some were lost to humanity forever in the blaze that ravaged the Paris cathedral Monday.

France's President Emmanuel Macron vowed to rebuild the Gothic monument within five years as pledges from French billionaires, businesses and the public sector to help reach some $790 million.

The cathedral's roof can not be rebuilt exactly as it was before the fire because "we don't, at the moment, have trees on our territory of the size that were cut in the 13th century", he said, adding the roof restoration work would have to use new technologies.

Deputy Interior Minister Laurent Nuñez said the structure was in good condition "overall" but that "some vulnerabilities" had been identified in the stone vaults and the remainder of the ceiling. (Winnipeg Tribune collection/University of Manitoba Archives) It's unclear whether any of Notre Dame's stained glass survived the fire, but the glass is gone from this opening.

Jihadists linked to ISIS have shared a menacing image of Notre Dame in flames once more, warning: "Wait for the next".

"We watched in shock and heartbreak with the rest of Paris", Windsor told the BBC about the blaze that lasted more than 12 hours.

Fifty investigators are now working on a "long" and "complex" probe into the cause, Paris prosecutor Remy Heitz told reporters.

"I hope we'll be able to rebuild". They are due to move out of Parliament in 2025 to allow for renovations that are estimated to cost £3.6bn.

Germany and Poland were among the countries that offered assistance.

Notre Dame had previously the site of a terror scare in 2016 when a auto carrying seven gas cylinders was found near the cathedral. Tim Cook, Apple CEO, also tweeted a promise that Cupertino will be helping finance the rebuilding efforts. Macron said Tuesday he wants the cathedral to be rebuilt in five years.

Likewise, the centuries-old timber within the building's internal structure, much of which was crafted into an intricate support structure by medieval artisans, may be irreplaceable. More details to come.

A firefighter suffered injuries during the blaze, which at one point threatened to bring down one of the two monumental towers on the western facade of the cathedral that is visited by 13 million tourists each year.

The cathedral also contained a number of invaluable historic artifacts, including a tunic King Louis IX is said to have worn when he brought the crown to Paris as well as a crown of thorns which the church claims was worn by Jesus before his crucifixion.

Rescuers formed a human chain at the site of the disaster to evacuate as many artifacts as possible, which were then stocked temporarily at the Paris town hall.
