French media reported that delicate job of dismantling the 200-300 tonnes of steel that melted atop Notre-Dame when the cathedral went up in flames has begun. Two teams of five workers each will take turns descending on ropes into the heat-warped web of scaffolding, made up of 40,000 pieces, and use saws to cut through metal tubes that fused together in the inferno. The chunks will then be lifted out by a crane.

The imposing tower of scaffolding was erected before the blaze for the restoration of Notre-Dame's spire that was then toppled and destroyed by the flames. Teams have spent months consolidating the structure with metal girders so it can be dismantled without collapsing.
