Any news on how it got started?
It will probably be two or three days before a definitive answer is given.
So far officials have ruled out arson and the fire has been declared accidental.
"Following the devastating fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, investigators said they were working on the assumption that the fire was started “involuntarily,” ruling out a criminal motive for the blaze or arson.
France’s newspaper Le Monde reported that the Paris prosecutor's office had opened an inquiry late Monday into “involuntary destruction by fire,” which excludes any “a priori criminal motive.” Despite the initial judgments, investigations entrusted to the Regional Directorate of Judicial Police are expected to be drawn out before any definitive findings are made public."
