Construction has resumed at France's famed Notre Dame cathedral, Monday, August 19, after work was suspended over fears of lead contamination. The construction work is in efforts to stabilize the structure and prevent the cathedral’s collapse following the April 15 inferno that destroyed much of the historic building. The fire melted hundreds of tons of lead in the cathedral’s spire and roof. Unusually high levels of lead were detected in the air and nearby buildings, forcing restoration work to be put on hold on July 25.
