Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Hit by Fire; Smiley Faces Posted in Response

A massive fire broke out on April 15, 2019, at Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the most visited landmarks in the world.

The fire is linked to a renovation project that was underway at the church’s spire.

“Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame,” Notre Dame spokesman Andre Finot told French media. The 12th-century cathedral is home to incalculable works of art and is one of the world’s most famous tourist attractions.
