What Caused The Fire
Fire wardens were already monitoring the building in 2019. However, that still did not help in preventing the blaze from taking over. It is believed that an electrical issue was to blame. Over the course of three hours, Parisians watched in horror as one of their most beloved treasures of the city went up in flames.
Saving Priceless Artifacts
Hundreds of firefighters worked tirelessly to try to extinguish the fire, while emergency services formed a human chain in order to try to save the irreplaceable artifacts from the unrelenting fire. Hours dragged on before the fire was able to be tamed.
