Bee Hives Survive Last Week's Fire At Notre Dame Cathedral

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. When Notre Dame was burning last week, officials looked on and thought of its residents. About 180,000 bees live on the roof. Notre Dame's beekeeper, Nicolas Geant, thought they were done for. The hives could easily melt with the bees inside. He told the Associated Press he was so relieved when he saw satellite photos showing that they survived. Later, he saw for himself. He posted a video online. Hives are intact, and bees are buzzing.
