I'm shocked they were able to save any of it.

Notre Dame Cathedral on Fire

Sounds like pretty much everything wooden was destroyed, but at least the stone shell is still there to rebuild. They should be able to rebuild it back to how it was, I'm sure there are enough photos and renderings to be able to replicate it. That was one thing that amazed me when we went to Germany was seeing pictures from WWII of these huge cathedrals and how they were almost completely destroyed by bombings but then being inside them and they are fully restored.

I think there are actually a few VR experiences you can do where they captured the inside. Google Earth might let you explore inside of it.
