Among many who conveyed dismay over the fire and stood in solidarity with the people of France, dairy brand Amul dedicated their latest topical to Notre Dame.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said a committee will oversee Notre Dame's reconstruction and global competition will be launched to rebuild the spire.

French President Emmanuel Macron wants to restore the iconic structure to its full glory within five years.

Some experts have estimated that the reconstruction work could take a decade or more.

Its spire collapsed and the roof was destroyed in the fire. Because of this highly-detailed data Ubisoft has on the cathedral, many believe the French developer can help in the restoration process.

Meanwhile, Notre Dame's rector said he would close the cathedral for up to "five to six years", acknowledging that a segment of the structure may be gravely weakened.

Philippe said authorities have no estimate yet of the total cost of the renovation work.

Ubisoft has made the game available to everyone for free on their own digital distribution service Uplay following the recent tragic fire at the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral. The Notre-Dame cathedral forms a central location in the game and had been painstakingly recreated by the team behind the game over the course of development.

The Paris prosecutor's office said investigators have been able to access some parts of the building, although others remain too risky.

Presidential cultural heritage envoy Stephane Bern told broadcaster France-Info on Wednesday that 880 million euros ($995 million) has been raised so far.

Criticism already has surfaced in France from those who say the money could be better spent elsewhere, on smaller, struggling churches or on workers.

Mr. Pospíšil points out that St. Vitus Cathedral can hold up to a 1,000 people and such moments would represent the biggest challenge if evacuation were required.

Patrick Lejeune, president of the Notre-Dame neighbourhood merchants association, told The Associated Press that the group's 150 employees fear for the future.

Disney has a connection to Notre Dame. Macron is holding a special Cabinet meeting Wednesday dedicated to the Notre Dame disaster.
