The fire rapidly spread and took over the iconic cathedral as onlookers scrambled to get a view of the destruction, even as soot and cinder fell onto them. Firefighters atop cherry picker cranes sprayed water onto the church in an attempt to calm the flames.

The spire atop the iconic Notre Dame cathedral collapsed amid a devastating fire at the Paris cathedral on Monday.

Images and video showed flames and thick plumes of smoke billowing up and around the spire, which is surrounded by scaffolding. The video showed the flaming spire lean to one side and then collapse amid the smoke.

Firefighters in Paris are battling to put out a huge blaze that has engulfed the iconic Notre Dame cathedral, a centuries-old building in the heart of the French capital.

Footage showed flames coming out of the Gothic cathedral early on Monday evening, with smoke billowing from the roof as stunned Parisians and tourists watched on in horror.

The structure’s soaring spire later collapsed in flames, and a church spokesman said the entire wooden interior of the 12th-century landmark was burning and likely to be destroyed.

“A terrible fire is under way at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris,” Mayor Anne Hidalgo said on Twitter.
