Just In: Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral On Fire (Video)

The Notre Dame cathedral, one of the most recognizable symbols of Paris, caught fire Monday evening.

Video and photos posted on social media showed flames engulfing the spire of the church.

“The roof has entire collapsed, there are flames coming out of the cathedral as if it were a torch. It looks like the Olympic torch from the back with flames coming through the roof,” France 24 reporter Charli James reported live on air.

Construction on the Gothic cathedral started in 1163. Renovations had just begun recently, with 16 statues removed from the church last week as part of the repairs.
