The Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul is on fire in France

In the French city of Nantes, one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in France — Saints Peter and Paul-caught fire. Free News reported this regarding the operational fire and rescue center.

It is noted that the fire started around 7.30 local time. Firefighters arrived at the scene of the incident. According to France Bleu radio, at least 60 firefighters and six fire engines are working, and the perimeter is cordoned off.

The Cathedral of Saint Peter and Paul in Nantes (XV-XVI centuries) is one of the most important Gothic structures in France. In height, it is six meters lower than the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. The last fire in the Cathedral occurred in 1972. The cause was a forgotten soldering iron. By September 2008, after restoration work, the medieval appearance of the Western facade was restored.
