Fire Breaks Out at Historic Notre-Dame Cathedral

Ablaze: Notre Dame Catherdal in Paris engulfed in fire

French President Emmanuel Macron arrives at the front entrance of the cathedral.

The Prime Minister of Canada tweeted in French and English saying the fire was "heartbreaking".

Macron said a national fundraising campaign to restore Notre Dame would be launched Tuesday and he called on the world's "greatest talents" to help.

French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters near the scene that he will seek worldwide help, including the "greatest talents" in the world, to rebuild Notre Dame.

In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May tweeted, "My thoughts are with the people of France tonight and with the emergency services who are fighting the bad blaze at Notre-Dame cathedral.".

Images posted on social media show smoke billowing out from the top of the medieval cathedral as flames tore through its two bell towers and the roof at the back of the cathedral. France's Civil Security agency said that wasn't feasible.

The archbishop of Paris called on all priests in Paris to ring church bells as a gesture of solidarity for Notre-Dame.

On Monday, the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France erupted in flames, which caused its spire and roof to collapse.

Notre Dame spokesman Andre Finot told French media: "Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame".

First lady Melania Trump said it was heartbreaking to see the fire.

"We are now in a time of cooling but both towers of the cathedral are safe", she told reporters. There are also live feeds on Twitter and Periscope to keep up with the Notre Dame news.

Canada's CBC News reported that firefighters were also trying to salvage some of the cathedral's priceless works of art. After emerging to face a throng of reporters, Marcon vowed the cathedral would be rebuilt and announced the launch of an global fundraising drive to begin raising the millions of dollars necessary to restore the building to its former glory.

The blaze collapsed the cathedral's spire, which had been shrouded in scaffolding as part of a 6 million-euro ($6.8 million) renovation project on the spire and its 250 tons of lead.

During an economic roundtable, President Trump said, "a awful sight to behold".
