Firefighters battle at Nantes Cathedral in western France

Firefighters are battling a blaze that broke out early Saturday inside a cathedral in the western French city of Nantes in the local fire service Nantes.

TV pictures show smoke coming from 15th-century architecture. The bomber struck shortly afternoon in front of a crowded Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, destroying its roof and main spire.

Sicily Reynolds, who worked at the bakery opposite the cathedral on Saturday morning, was alerted to information about the fire on Saturday and told BFM TV that a huge fire had broken out inside the building.

"It's a big shock. It's very sad."

This is not the first time the church has caught fire. It was partially destroyed in World War II after the Allied bombing in 1944. In 1972 a fire completely destroyed his roof. It was eventually rebuilt 13 years later.
