"That's shocking, Paris without Notre Dame", said Tiffany. "It's the place where we live our greatest moments, from wars to pandemics to liberations", he said.

"The task overnight was to bring the fire under control so it doesn't re-start", said Junior Interior Minister Laurent Nunez in front of the cathedral. An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire which may be linked to renovation work. Gallet said 'two-thirds of the roofing has been ravaged'.

Bertrand de Feydeau, vice president of preservation group Fondation du Patrimoine, told France Info radio that the wooden roof that went up in flames was built with beams more than 800 years ago from primal forests.

The fire came less than a week before Easter amid Holy Week commemorations.

As the cathedral burned, Parisians gathered spontaneously to pray and sing hymns outside the church of Saint-Julien-Les-Pauvres across the river from Notre Dame while the flames lit the sky behind them. Paris Archbishop Michel Aupetit invited priests across France to ring church bells in a call for prayers for the beloved Paris cathedral.

Four hundred firefighters battled the fire for hours. He vowed that France would rebuild Notre Dame because it's their "destiny".
