The Notre Dame Cathedral In Paris Is On Fire

The Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the most historic landmarks in the French capital, was engulfed in flames Monday evening as a catastrophic fire raced through the iconic structure, collapsing its spire and causing significant destruction to the centuries-old building.Video and photos posted on social media showed flames engulfing the cathedral, before both the ceiling and the 90-meter (295 feet) — spire came crashing down, drawing gasps and moans of disbelief from witnesses.The fire spread to one of the cathedral’s iconic towers, but French officials said late Monday that firefighters were optimistic they could save both towers.
