A terrible fire broke out Monday that engulfed the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The fire caused the collapse of the 850 yr. old church’s roof and iconic gothic spire.
Dozens gathered in front of Cathedral to sing the melody of Hatikva (song of hope).

After the fire was controlled the fire brigade assured the public that the main structure had been saved, reported the AFP Agency.
French President Emmanuel Macron who was at the scene of the fire said that “the worst had been avoided” and promised that the Cathedral will be rebuilt.
