Notre Dame to be rebuilt within 5 years: Macron

Wed, Apr. 17, 2019
PARIS, April 16 (MENA) - French President Emmanuel Macron vowed to rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral within five years after a devastating fire Monday caused the landmark’s roof and spire to collapse, CNBC News reported.

"We now have to get things done," Macron said in an address Tuesday. "We will act and we will succeed."

Monday's devastating fire was likely sparked accidentally, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Outside the building, the cathedral's two bell towers and outer walls stood firm, while their insides and the upper structure were eviscerated by the blaze.

Investigators will not be allowed inside the cathedral until experts can verify that the structure withstood the heat and it is safe for them to enter.
