A catastrophic fire at Notre Dame Cathedral: Notre-Dame is an architectural treasure, recognizable from its iconic exterior but inside was 800 years of artwork, stained glass, wooden carvings and a frame of heavy timber. The iconic spire is gone and so is the roof, but the bell towers were saved. Paris officials say Notre Dame can be rebuilt. President Emmanuel Macron announced a national fundraising campaign to restore the French icon in the heart of the capital. President Trump called Notre Dame one of the great treasures of the world.
