NEW: Cathedral Spox: Entire Interior of Notre Dame Will Likely Be Destroyed

Moments after the iconic spire on Notre Dame collapsed

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.

Notre Dame is the cathedral of the Archdiocese of Paris and is a historic site that attracts millions of visitors every year.

Officials in Paris are saying the fire may be linked to a multi-million dollar renovation project, however the cause has not been confirmed.


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 are working to salvage art and other priceless pieces stored inside of Notre Dame.

Paris officials are claiming the fire may have been an accident stemming from a construction project, however many are skeptical of that narrative.

Reminder, ISIS has been targeting France for years.

France was hit with gruesome terrorist attacks recently and ISIS promised it was just the beginning.

In 2015 ISIS released a statement claiming responsibility for the Islamic terror attack in Paris at the Bataclan theatre that killed 130 people and wounded more than 200.

In 2016, a jihadist plowed over and killed 86 people and injured over 400 on Bastille Day in Nice.
