YouTube linked to information about the 9/11 terrorist attacks on livestreams of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire Monday even though officials had not identified the cause of the blaze.

The pages for the streams initially included YouTube’s new information panels right below the video with a brief note and a link to the Encyclopedia Britannica’s article on the 2001 attack. The cause of the fire is unknown.

The article goes on to state the following:

YouTube began rolling out the information panels last month in order to combat conspiracy theories by providing context on controversial topics.

The Hill stated that YouTube has since removed the references to 9/11 from the livestream videos about the Notre Dame Cathedral fire.  No information has been reported that the fire has any connection to an attack. Media reports have suggested it may be linked to renovation work taking place on the building, but no official information has been released as to what exactly caused the fire.
