Notre-Dame blaze
Europe   More than 400 firemen were needed to tame the inferno

The fire that tore through Notre-Dame cathedral was probably caused by accident, French prosecutors said.

More than 400 firemen were needed to tame the inferno that consumed the roof and collapsed the spire of the eight-centuries-old cathedral. They worked through the night to bring the fire under control some 14 hours after it began.

“We are favoring the theory of an accident,” Paris public prosecutor Remy Heitz said, adding that 50 people were working on what was expected to be a long and complex investigation.
