Also firefighters and police in Berlin expressed their sympathy. “When fighting fires on a beloved landmark bleeding every firefighter’s heart,” wrote the firefighters from Berlin on Twitter and wish colleagues in Paris “a lot of power in the fight for #NotreDame”. The Berlin police tweeted: “We are in thoughts with the forces that just give everything for the heart of #Paris.”
