A security guard in charge of protecting Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris worked until the third day and sent his colleague to the wrong building to check for a new report at the outbreak of the fire.
] The April 15th blaze shocked people around the world as firefighters fought to contain the fire.
Prosecutors investigating the cause of the fire said last month that so far there is no evidence that the fire was a crime. Instead, the Paris Public Prosecutor's Office announced in a statement on Wednesday that several hypotheses on the cause of the fire on April 15 related to a malfunction of the electrical system or a smoldering cigarette.
NOTRE DAME FIRE CAN BE CAUSED BY CIGARETTE OR CURRENT FAILURE.  Although the cause of the fire is still unclear, events in the early stages of the fire suggest that part of the damage could have been contained if the novice guard had gone to the right building.
During the early phase, there was a serious miscommunication warning of the fire, as one of the guards checked the fire-free sacristy, not the cathedral's attic, which delayed the response to the fire, the New York Times reported in a lengthy investigation ,
Only 30 minutes later, the staff at the cathedral noticed that they had made a mistake and sent the guard to the loft, which was also called "the forest" because of its old wooden beams holding the roof, and discovered that it was a fire already in full swing.

The report found that the person who told the guard the location of the fire did not work there until the third day, and that he was I just getting used to the alarm system.
The system itself was complex and outdated, and the question arose as to whether the responsible person understood the alarm at all.
