According to Business Insider, the Notre-Dame Cathedral is on fire.
The famous spire at the top of the historic cathedral in Paris has also fallen.
The steeple structure fell around 8 p.m. local time, as firefighters fought the flames rising from the Notre-Dame.
The spire, originally built has a bell tower, has stood since 1852.
