Video: The Notre Dame Cathedral In Paris Is On Fire

We have a developing situation in Paris, The Notre Dame Cathedral in the heart of Paris is on fire.

There has been construction work going on in that particular area.

This is a still shot that we have and as you can see,  the tall spire and part of the roof is on fire.

Keep in mind this is a very one of the busiest seasons for Notre Dame because we just had Palm Sunday and Easter is coming up this Sunday, so a lot of tourists.

They have cleared that particular area in and around Notre Dame now and firefighters are on the scene.

Police are calling it a major operation, but as you can see the part of the roof is on fire, it looks like part of the spire is also on fire. Construction on this Cathedral began in 1163. Some 12 million visitors each year visit the Cathedral and it is the most visited monument in Paris.
