A major operation is under way at the 850-year-old Gothic building but the spire has collapsed.
Well, shit. It's been burning for a good hour now and from what I have heard on my discords is that the Spire has already burnt down.A fire has broken out at the famous Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris and has spread rapidly across the building.
The cause is not yet clear, but officials say that it could be linked to renovation work.
A major operation to tackle the blaze is under way at the 850-year-old Gothic building, but the cathedral's spire has collapsed.
Last year, the Catholic Church in France appealed for funds to save the building, which was crumbling.
A spokesman for the cathedral said the whole structure was "burning".
