Holy Week Horror.
A fire engulfed the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris Monday evening — people around the world watched in horror as the iconic spire collapsed.
AP reported: Notre Dame spokesman Andre Finot told French media the entire wooden interior of the building is ablaze and will burn: “Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame.”
Also according to the Associated Press, firefighters and other first responders were working to salvage art and other priceless pieces stored inside of Notre Dame.
