  • A major fire broke out at the medieval Notre-Dame Cathedral in central Paris on Monday afternoon, leading firefighters to clear the area around one of the city’s most visited landmarks.
  • It was not immediately clear what had caused the fire. France 2 television reported that police were treating the incident as an accident.
  • Notre-Dame was in the midst of renovations, with some sections under scaffolding, while bronze statues were removed last week for works.
Un terrible incendie est en cours à la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. Les @PompiersParis sont en train de tenter de maîtriser les flammes. Nous sommes mobilisés sur place en lien étroit avec le @dioceseParis. J'invite chacune et chacun à respecter le périmètre de sécurité.
This looks pretty bad.
