The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is on fire.

It is not immediately clear what has caused the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, there are no confirmed deaths, and reports state that police in the city are treating it as an accident.

The cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century and is famous for featuring in Victor Hugo's classic novel "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame," attracts millions of tourists every year.

In a tweet the mayor of Paris has confirmed the fire, and called for residents to remain away from the scene.

The only details available right now are that Notre Dame was in the midst of renovations, with some sections under scaffolding, while bronze statues were removed last week for works.
