15 heartbreaking pictures of the Notre Dame in the aftermath of the fire

On Monday 17 April, 2019, a major fire broke out in the Notre-Dame. The flames ravaged the 850-year-old cathedral, causing its steeple to fall. In the aftermath of the fire, the cause of which has not yet been determined, the world has shared its sadness for Paris following the loss of an important part of the city's history.

President Macron has vowed the cathedral will be rebuilt "even more beautifully" within the next five years, but for now the Notre Dame will remain as the fire left it - charred, blemished, and frozen in time.
