Notre Dame Structure Being Preserved after Massive Fire

Workers will attempt to begin a $12 million renovation process in the coming days to preserve the infrastructure of Paris’ historic Notre Dame cathedral following a horrific fire Monday, according to French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner.

The fire, which was completely extinguished Tuesday, reportedly broke out on the roof, which was constructed from giant oak beams, including some dating back to the 13th century.

Castaner said there is still structural risk to the building, adding that it will take months to reconstruct the 850-year-old cathedral.

A team of 50 investigators will seek to identify the precise reason for the fire, though authorities said there was nothing to suggest it was anything other than accidental.
