Parts of the 12th-century landmark cathedral collapsed in the massive fire and nearby residents were evacuated. Throngs of tourists and locals gathered nearby to watch and take images of the fire.

Paris fire commander Jean-Claude Gallet said hundreds of firefighters were able to stop the flames from spreading to the north tower belfry, and the Paris police chief said the structure had been saved from total destruction.

“Like all our countrymen, I’m sad tonight to see this part of us burn,” French President Emmanuel Macron said in a tweet.

According to initial media reports, there are no deaths connected to the fire. It’s not immediately clear if anyone was hurt in the fire.

The cathedral is undergoing a $6.8 million renovation project.
