PARIS, April 15 (Reuters) - Notre-Dame Cathedral went up in flames on Monday in a roaring blaze that devasted the Parisian landmark, one of France's most visited places.
Flames burst through the roof of the centuries-old cathedral and quickly engulfed the spire, which collapsed.
A huge plume of smoke wafted across the city and ash fell over a large area.
Firefighters cleared the area around the cathedral, which marks the very center of Paris.
President Emmanuel Macron canceled an address to the nation that he had been due to give later on Monday evening. A presidential official said Macron was to go to the scene of the blaze.
"A terrible fire is under way at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris," Mayor Anne Hidalgo said on Twitter.
France 2 television reported that police were treating the incident as an accident.

Holy Week terrorism?
My first thought also.
They’re pushing the “renovation” theory so hard it’s obviously terrorism.
Someone said they were doing restoration.
Shame. Construction completed 1345.
The fire is clearly out of control. Its going to be destroyed.
Might be a good idea to CCW to your Church this weekend....if you don’t already.
does anyone know if there will be threads about the ND fire?
Could it be ISLAMIC JIHAD???
FNC: All of Notre Dame Cathedral’s frame is burning.
EGAD! The whole building is a masterpiece.
Read elsewhere there’s footage of Muslims celebrating but haven’t seen it yet.
Likely due to renovation.
All that history & poof, gone in flames
Sad to watch
Aftermath of the reign of terror and the French revolution AND Vatican II apostacy.
So FEW people have true Christian faith. The edifice is in disrepair and has been hosting a false mass aver since its creation in the late 60’s. Sad.
Pray the Rosary.
Spire has collapsed....................
