On 15 April 2019, the structure and roof of the 850-year-old gothic Notre-Dame Cathedral suffered a devastating fire. Some 500 firefighters managed to prevent the entire cathedral from being reduced to ashes, although its celebrated spire has been destroyed. French President Emmanuel Macron promised to rebuild the cathedral within five years.
