PARIS, July 18 (KUNA) — French emergency services on Saturday announced that a huge fire broke out at the landmark Nantes Cathedral, and firefighters managed to bring it under control.
In a press statement, the director of the fire department General Laurent Verlai said that the damage caused to the cathedral is not comparable to that of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris a year ago.
Meanwhile, Nantes’ public prosecutor Pierre Sen said that the fire broke out in three places, which indicates that the incident could be deliberate.
For his part, French President Emmanuelle Macron tweeted his support for the firefighters who were “taking all the risks to save the Gothic jewel”.
