Hives sit on the sacristy south of Notre-Dame, at around 30m (98 ft) below the main roof. As a result, Mr. Géant said that they did not get fires.

is the greatest danger, but G. Géant explains that any smoke can only be inoculated with them.
"Instead of killing them, carbon dioxide feeds them, calling them," he told the AP.
Beekeepers usually use smoke to dissolve insects and gain access to their nests.
"I'm incredibly sad about Notre-Dame because it's such a beautiful building," said Mr Géant in a CNN interview.
"But to hear there is life when it comes to bees, just wonderful."
"Thanks to goodness the fire does not touch them," he added. "It's a miracle!"
