With Easter Sunday approaching it is being reported that one of the most historic religious visitor sites in the world, Notre Dame Cathedral, in Paris, is engulfed in flames.
Before the building of the Eiffel Tower, the Spire, which has now collapsed, atop of the Notre Dame Cathedral (construction start in 1163) was the tallest piece of architecture in Paris.
Reported by CNN:
The fire rapidly spread and took over the iconic cathedral as onlookers nearby scrambled in disbelief to get a view. Seven or eight firetrucks were trying to tackle the flames and the smell of smoke emanated through the air.
At this time while this fire continues, the cause of fire has not been reported.
