The central spire and roof of France’s world-famous Notre Dame Cathedral collapsed Monday after a massive blaze engulfed the centuries-old House of Worship; shocking residents and tourists throughout the city.
“Black smoke could be seen from a distance billowing out from the top of the medieval cathedral, while flames leaped out from two of its bell towers. The sight stopped pedestrians in their tracks along the Seine River, which passes under the cathedral,” reports Fox News.
