UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The French capital, Paris, on Monday (April 15th) witnessed a real disaster with a huge fire in the historic Notre Dame Cathedral.

The fire broke down the 850-year-old cathedral tower, with the entire building badly damaged.

As the fire broke out, authorities and firefighters went to the notorious Notre Dame Cathedral to extinguish the flames as quickly as possible to avoid a complete collapse.

But putting out a fire in Notre Dame was never easy, because the authorities were unable to use planes and spray water from the air, fearing the destruction of the rest of Notre Dame and harming people around the cathedral.

“The Canadair launches about 6 tons of high-speed water to the ground: the big danger is that one or more people are injured around the building, so this type of intervention is very rare in urban and peri-urban areas,” Le Monde said. Such interference could greatly destroy the cathedral’s basic structure.”

It was also reported that the pilot would be criminally responsible for the consequences of dropping water on Notre Dame Cathedral, according to Mirror.

The catastrophic fire brought crowds and tourists to the bridges and the banks of the Seine to observe the attempts of emergency services to save the cathedral and the artistic monuments within it, which are priceless.
