According to Bloomberg, it took nearly 12 hours to completely put out the fire and it is estimated that restoration works could take years to complete. Emmanuel Macron declared in a statement,

“We will rebuild Notre-Dame because that’s what the French people want. That’s what our history deserves, because that is our destiny.”

Meanwhile, a number of individuals and companies have come forward to donate large sums of money to fund restoration efforts. According to Business Insider Malaysia, at least USD$728 million (approx. RM3 billion) has been pledged so far.
