Notre Dame’s In Flames and the Videos Are Heartbreaking



 
The iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris erupted in flames today as firefighters continue to battle the blaze. Distraught onlookers were at a loss for words when the famous spire fell and people around the world are sharing their sorrow as one of the most famous churches in the world continues to burn.
There was no immediate word on the cause of the fire, but the structure had been undergoing a $6.8 million renovation project, including work on its spire. Located on the le de la Cit in the middle of the Seine River, the soaring Gothic structure dates to the 13th century and was completed in the 15th century.
