A fire has broken out at the world-famous Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris.
Smoke and flames were seen billowing out of the back of the cathedral. Several videos of the fire have been posted by onlookers on social media.
The cause of the fire, which began Monday evening, have not been determined. Authorities have said that it could be related to the 6 million-euro renovation project on the church, which is currently ongoing.
French President Emmanuel Macron has postponed a televised speech to the nation because of the fire. He was expected to lay out his plan to address the citizen complaints that gave rise to the yellow vest protests that have rocked France since November.
President Trump also tweeted about the fire, calling it “horrible to watch.”
