Has there been any word on the fate of the altar and pulpit which were in the crypt.. ?

Also – what were the statues in the niches around the cathedral made of? I have a suspicion that the only 2 to survive were on the back sanctuary wall. Since the marble altars and panelling have held up to a certain extent, I can only assume that the statues either fell, or were made with a material that basically shattered or burnt in the heat.
