A fire started on the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris this morning, the roof and spire have collapsed into the nave.

The cathedral dates back to the 12th century and is a UNESCO World Heritage site, attracting millions of visitors annually. It is the site of Victor Hugo's classic, "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame."

President of the European Council Donald Tusk tweeted, "Notre-Dame of Paris is Notre-Dame of all Europe. We are all with Paris today."[13]

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a message to France that Notre Dame is "a symbol of French and European Culture" and Germany's foreign minister, Heiko Maas, said the fire was 'hitting the hearts' of the German people.[14]
