The historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France was engulfed in flames Monday morning. The massive fire led to the collapse of the structure’s main spires.
A collection of dramatic videos and photos spread through social media showing the roof and spire of the nearly 900-year-old cathedral engulfed in flames and massive amounts of smoke billowing up from its roof.
President Donald Trump tweeted about the fire, writing it was “horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.”
So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!
