Notre-Dame Cathedral has stood tall above Paris since the 1200s. A devastating fire ripped through the cathedrals roof this week – bringing down its famous wooden spire and destroying some of its famous windows.

Now that it has been fully extinguished, experts have shed some light on the difficulties fire crews faced as they fought to save such a large, historic building.
