(WBAP/KLIF) – Reports of a fire at the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris spread around the globe Monday.
President Trump took to Twitter with his response:
So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!

The 12th century cathedral is undergoing a $6-million-dollar renovation project, but the exact cause of the fire is under investigation.
“We’re all very sad to see the burning,” said Director of Alliance Francaise Dallas, Patricia Meausoone. “This is a very old building and a lot has happened there. Just to see it burn makes you really how fragile it is.”
The Deputy Mayor of Paris said the cathedral suffered “colossal damages” from the fire that started in the spire and caused it to collapse.
