The spire and the roof of the Notre Dame cathedral fell due to fire in Paris, as CNN reports.
The fire sized the entire spire and moved to another part of the building. That is why the spire fell to the ground.
"As the spire of the Notre Dame cathedral, there were horrified gasps from the watching crowd. Sirens blare in the background, as emergency personnel work to put out the flames", the report said.
The roof fell due to the fire as well, as Meduza reports.

The press service of the President of France reported that Macron canceled the planned speech in the Elysee Palace in order to come to the cathedral.
The law enforcers order all the people to leave the streets near the cathedral and to go to safe places. The firefighters are trying to extinguish the fire. The medical workers arrived at the spot as well. It is still unknown, whether there are victims.
