PARIS (AP) — A catastrophic fire engulfed the upper reaches of Paris’ soaring Notre Dame Cathedral as it was undergoing renovations Monday, threatening one of the greatest architectural treasures of the Western world as tourists and Parisians looked on aghast from the streets below. France’s Interior Ministry said firefighters might not be able to save the structure.

The blaze collapsed the cathedral’s spire and spread to one of its landmark rectangular towers. A spokesman said the entire wooden frame of the cathedral would likely come down, and that the vault of the edifice could be threatened too.

The AP goes on to state the following:

The fire chief in Paris says it’s unclear if city firefighters will be able to keep a fire at Notre Dame from spreading and causing more destruction.

Fire Chief Jean-Claude Gallet said outside the iconic cathedral as his crews battled the blaze from both the exterior and interior: “We are not sure we are capable of stopping the spreading” to Notre Dame’s second tower and belfry.

    I sure hope it wasn’t arson. This cathedral means everything to the French. Pray for the firefighters safety and that they can contain the fire before it spreads further. God bless.

    Evidently on FOX News you can no longer raise questions as to how this fire may have started and why there was such a delay in getting fire resources to the cathedral. Considering that over the course of the past year Catholic Churches have been set ablaze, tabernacles toppled, statues smashed and desecrated, its certainly within the realm of possibility that this may have been intentionally set, with the number of recent Muslim immigrants to France who have been desecrating the Catholic Churches countrywide.
