The cause of the fire is already called violations during repairs: the cathedral is partially enclosed by scaffolding, the fire spread from the attic of a historic building.
Quickly spread through the scaffolding that surrounds the building, he spread to the spire and the famous clock. The moment the spire collapsed made people around the world shudder.
Two-thirds of the roof of the building's structure burned out. The flames raged literally inside the whole building and yet, due to the collapse of two-thirds of the roof, the founding structure together with the two towers was saved.
On the fact of the fire, the prosecutor's office of the French capital launched an investigation. French President Emmanuel Macron has already announced the collection of funds around the world, stating that restoring the cathedral is "this is our destiny."

Notre Dame Cathedral, Notre-Dame de Paris or Notre-Dame de Paris (Paris Notre-Dame de Paris) is a Catholic church in the center of Paris, one of the symbols of the French capital. The Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Paris. Located in the eastern part of the island of Cite, in the 4th urban district, on the site of the first Christian church in Paris - St. Stephen's Basilica, built, in turn, on the foundation of the Gallo-Roman temple of Jupiter. The gothic cathedral was built on the initiative of the Paris Bishop Maurice de Sully in the period 1163-1345. The altar portion was consecrated in 1182; the western facade and the towers were completed in the second quarter of the 13th century. Since 1235, major changes were made: the chapels between the buttresses of the nave (middle of the XIII century) were equipped; the size of the transept was increased (architects Jean de Chelles from 1250 and Pierre de Montreuil up to 1267); the chapels of the choir (Pierre de Chel and Jean Ravi in the beginning of the XIV century) and the big arc-butane deambulatory (Jean Ravi, the beginning of the XIV century) were added. In the XIX century, under the direction of Viollet-le-Duc, the sculptured part damaged in the Revolution was restored, the stained-glass roses of the nave were restored and a new spire was erected in place of the lost one.
One of the first large Gothic cathedrals with a six-winged arch, while preserving the characteristics of the transitional stage from the Romanesque style of Normandy: double lateral longitudinal aisles and the presence of stands (upper galleries). The western facade attests to the mastery of the architectural composition; the sculptural decoration of its entrance portals is a masterpiece of Gothic art. The portal of St. Anne on the right is the oldest (end of the XII century); portal of the Last Judgment in the center (1220–1230) underwent many restorations; the portal of the Mother of God - northern, on the left (beginning of the XIII century). On the south side of the temple the portal (2nd half of the XIII century) of the transept is dedicated to the first Christian martyr St. Stephen. Antique stained glass windows are preserved only in two transept roses and the main entrance rose.
Gaining fame and saving the cathedral from destruction in many ways contributed to the eponymous historical (narrating about the 15th century) novel by Victor Hugo, published in 1831. He was badly hit by a fire on April 15, 2019.
