Paris was burning quite literally on Monday after the attic of Notre-Dame cathedral caught on fire. Billowing Smoke and tall blazes were seen from around the city as citizens watched the famous landmark in horror. The fire is said to have spread from the attic, causing the cathedral’s spire, one of Paris’s most iconic architectural features, to collapse. A few hours later the entire roof had been turned to ash. Onlookers stood near the cathedral weeping.
