A look inside Notre Dame Cathedral after the fire


 Parisians watched in heartache Monday as 850-plus years of art, faith and culture blazed at Notre Dame Cathedral. The spire fell. The roofing was ravaged. But then, after officials announced late Monday that the cathedral would survive, signs of hope surfaced among the damage.
The cathedral's golden altar cross was seen standing as officials surveyed the charred structure. Votive candles lit prior to the blaze — each one symbolizing a prayer — still flickered undisturbed in the cathedral, CNN reported.


"Notre Dame was destroyed but the soul of France was not," Michel Aupetit, archbishop of Paris, told RMC radio.

Not all was lost, surveyors found. And many of the cathedral's greatest treasures were safe. Here are hopeful signs of what's survived in the Notre Dame fire.
