A dangerous fire took place in France’s Cathedral of Notre Dame at 6:30 p.m. local time on Monday. Nearly 500 firefighters arrived at the scene in an attempt to put out the spreading flames and save the historic landmark. By 11 p.m., the firefighters contained and stopped the fire. Most of the cathedral’s structure was spared from significant damage. However, two-thirds of its roof did not survive the fire's onslaught. Officials say the fire possibly originated from in the cathedrals internal wooden beams. Save for one firefighter who was severely injured while battling the fire there were no casualties during the entire ordeal.
