The cause and severity of this fire is currently unknown, though it is being described in the French media as “devastating.” Firefighters are currently on the scene.
Construction on the Nantes Cathedral began in 1434 and took 457 years to complete.
Multiple churches in the United States have also been burned or vandalized in recent weeks.
The statue of Jesus Christ at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Southwest Miami-Dade was found vandalized and knocked from its pedestal on July 15.
A fire destroyed Faith Tabernacle Pentecostal Church in Elkmont, Alabama Friday night.
On Saturday a man drove into a church in Ocala, Florida, before lighting it on fire.
Next, a fire destroyed the roof of 249-Year-Old San Gabriel Mission Church in California.
This is a breaking story and the Gateway Pundit will update with more information as it becomes available.
