Pope Francis thanked the firefighters who battled to extinguish the fire at the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on behalf of the entire Catholic Church, ONA reports citing Sputnik. 

"The gratitude of the whole Church goes to all those who did everything they could, even risking their lives, to save the Basilica," he said during the weekly general audience in Saint Peter's Square.

Recall that the devastating fire broke out at Notre Dame de Paris on Monday evening, causing the collapse of the cathedral's spire and two-thirds of its roof.
