The news of a fire breaking out at Paris’ legendary Notre Dame cathedral came as a shock to many. Bollywood celebrities like Vicky Kaushal, Rishi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Nimrat Kaur and Arjun Kapoor took to social media to voice their anguish on seeing the iconic cathedral in flames.
A devastating fire that engulfed the Notre Dame, the 850-year-old Unesco world heritage landmark in Paris, was brought under control on Tuesday morning, while the Cathedral's main structure as well as its two towers has been saved.
The fire began at around 6.30 p.m., on Monday and quickly caused the collapse of the Cathedral's spectacular Gothic spire and the destruction of its roof structure, which dated back to the 13th century.

Bhumi posted an old picture on story, saying, “Woke up to the news of #NotreDameFire and my heart broke. Shattered. Having visited the cathedral a few times, there is a sense of loss.. So much history.. more power to the firefighters that have done everything to save it.”
