Firefighters dealing with a blaze at Notre Dame cathedral

A fire broke out at Notre Dame Cathedral in central Paris on Monday afternoon.

That's according a spokesman from the fire department said.

Smoke could be seen billowing out from the top of the medieval cathedral, as flames lept out besides its two bell towers, a Reuters witness said.

A major operation was under way, the fire department added, while a city hall spokesman said on Twitter that the area was being cleared.
