#Watch: Massive fire in Paris destroys 850-year-old Notre-Dame Cathedral


Paris | The fire on Monday destroyed the roof of the 850-year-old UNESCO world heritage landmark Notre-Dame Cathedral, whose spectacular Gothic spire collapsed before the eyes of horrified onlookers on a previously pristine early spring evening.

The fire, which came as Catholics prepare to celebrate Easter, sent orange flames and clouds of grey smoke billowing into the sky as stunned Parisians and tourists watched on in horror.
