According to a police official, it is likely that a short-circuit caused the fire that ravaged the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
The announcement came as France paid a full day of tribute to the firefighters who managed to save much of the church’s structure. Investigators have still not been allowed into the structure at this time, as it has not been deemed safe. The frame is currently being shored up by wooden planks to ensure there is no collapse.
Investigators so far believe the fire was accidental, and are questioning both cathedral staff and workers who were carrying out renovations.
