The whistleblower cries for Notre Dame

The sorrowful users of social media shared moving images of Notre Dame's most famous resident, while the inferno flooded the famous landmark of Paris.

They placed photos of a tearing-up Quasimodo from Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame with his arms embracing the iconic building as they watched 850 years of history go up in flames.

One left the famous whistleblower with the burning cathedral in his hands next to the words: & Today he cries. It was the part of a childhood of very many people around the world. & # 39;

Another showed a pink heart on the front of the 850-year-old structure and one depicted a gargoyle, one of the famous features of the building, crying.

The Disney film is based on the novel of the same name from 1831, written by Victor Hugo, and shows Quasimodo and his struggle to be accepted in society.

When the memes flooded, the internet firefighters reported at 8.45 am that the fire had been completely extinguished.

It took hours after they had confirmed that they had saved the main structure from being completely destroyed.

Last night, French President Emmanuel Macron vowed to rebuild Notre Dame after the devastating inferno that had destroyed the Catholic Cathedral.

Speaking for several hours after the roof of the 850-year-old building collapsed, Macron said a national fundraising campaign to restore the historic building would be launched and the & # 39; greatest talents & # 39; would help the world.

The French leader wrote the & # 39; courage & # 39; and & # 39; great professionalism & # 39; of firemen with sparse Notre Dame & # 39; s spectacular Gothic façade and two monumental towers for destruction, saying: & # 39; the worst is avoided & # 39 ;.

But much of the monumental building on the UNESCO World Heritage List was destroyed. The 300ft-tall Gothic spire collapsed in the embers early in the fire to painful cries of & # 39; Oh my God & # 39; of the local population through the unfolding scene transfixed.

Instagram was flooded with memes from users who expressed their sorrows, some with photos from Quasimodo of The Hunchback of Notre Dame of Disney, surrounding the cathedral. They placed a picture of the character who was holding the burning building in his hands and wrote: & # 39; Today he is crying. It was the childhood part of many people around the world & # 39;

The fire broke out just before 7:00 pm local time in a rooftop area that underwent around £ 6m of renovations.

The fire department said last night that they believed it was an accident, but the investigation continued.

More than 400 firefighters fought against the flames, which quickly spread along the roof construction, causing burning wood to collapse on the ceiling of the underlying vault.

Part of it crashed into the aisle, but the Twitter account of the cathedral stated that the damage inside was less than feared, in a message that & # 39; Allelujah & # 39; ended.

Around 3:00 a.m. local time, the Paris fire brigade, Jean-Claude Gallet, said: & # 39; We can imagine that the main structure of Notre-Dame has been saved and preserved, as well as the two towers. & # 39;

And a brigade spokesperson added: & # 39; We will continue to watch over any residues of fire and cool areas that are still glowing hot, such as the wooden beam frame. & # 39;

One fireman was seriously injured by tackling the fire, but no fatalities were reported.

Teams of firefighters from all over the city were called in to try to turn off the fire after it quickly spread through the cathedral on Monday evening

The building – and the entire Ile de la Cite island that it occupies in the center of the French capital – was successfully evacuated because the severity of the fire became apparent.

Like the historic narrowing, the cathedral was home to dozens of priceless objects, including the famous crown of thorns worn by Jesus during his crucifixion.

A human chain of care providers carried this and many other things in safety.
