The hives are placed above the sacristy on the south side of Notre-Dame, about 30 metres lower than the main building's roof, and according to the Géant reached the hives are not of the flames."
" I got a call from André Finot, spokesman for the Notre-Dame cathedral, which is said that the bees fly in and out of the hives which means that they are still alive. Now, when I know it is a big relief, " says Nicolas Géant for the tv channel CNN."
