Notre Dame

Notre Dame - French Investigators think that an electrical short circuit may have caused the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral, according to a judicial police official. An initial assessment of the cathedral was made on Wednesday but safety hazards have prevented a search of its interior. Investigators so far believe the fire was accidental and have been questioning cathedral staff, as well as workers who were carrying out renovations. About 40 people had been questioned by Thursday.
