French firefighters ‘not sure’ if Notre Dame fire can be stopped

French firefighters have expressed doubts the devastating fire on the Notre Dame cathedral (Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris) can be stopped haven’t dominated out additional collapse of the enduring landmark.

“We’re not sure we can stop the fire spreading into the northern bell tower – and you can imagine the damage if it collapses,” a firefighter spokesman instructed reporters.

Earlier, the firefighters have dominated out the likelihood to make use of aerial help in combating the devastating blaze.

“Helicopter or plane, the weight of the water and the intensity of dropping it at low altitude could weaken the structure of Notre-Dame and cause collateral damage to surrounding buildings,” the French Civil Security tweeted.
