Notre Dame Ablaze

So sad and disheartening:

A fire broke out at the iconic Notre Dame cathedral in the heart of Paris on Monday evening.

Here’s what we know about the blaze:

The spire was destroyed: Large parts of the roof already appear to have been burned, CNN’s Melissa Bell, who is in Paris, reported. The spire collapsed during the fire.

Firefighters tackled large flames: At least seven firetrucks were trying to tackle the flames, she said. The smell of smoke was emanating through the air and embers were falling from the sky.

Cause unknown: The cause of the fire is still unclear.

Police kept people away: Police urged everyone to avoid the area and emergency services pushed people away from the scene.
