Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Fire

The Notre Dame cathedral, one of the most recognizable symbols of Paris, caught fire Monday evening. Construction on the Gothic cathedral started in 1163. Renovations had just begun recently, with 16 statues removed from the church last week as part of the repairs. The cause of the fire is currently unknown.
