US President Donald Trump on Monday held telephone conversations with representatives of the French authorities in connection with the fire that arose in the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. The American leader reported this during a roundtable on the economy and tax reform in Minnesota.

"I contacted representatives of France. They have a terrible fire," the president said.

He did not indicate who he was talking about. Trump stressed that the cathedral is "grander than almost any museum in the world."

"This is terrible, and it looks like it will burn to the ground," said the US leader. "This is part of our culture, this is part of our life, I was there. There is no other cathedral in the world like this. This is one of the greatest treasures of the world."

At the same time, Trump added that the fire in the cathedral "somewhat overshadows" the forum in Minnesota.

Earlier, Trump proposed the use of aircraft to extinguish a fire that arose in the Cathedral of Notre Dame. The corresponding message was posted by the American leader on Twitter.

"It is terrible to watch a strong fire in the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Probably, you can use fire aviation. You must act quickly!" - wrote the president.

As reported, the fire in the Cathedral of Notre Dame arose at about 18:50. As a result of a fire, the upper part of the spire and the clock collapsed.

As the rescue services suggest, it could have been caused by the restoration work carried out on the roof of the cathedral.

According to the representative of the rescue services, the fire "belongs to the category of the most difficult," including because of the scaffolding surrounding the upper part of the building. A few minutes after the fire, the upper part of the spire and the cathedral clock collapsed.

A large number of firefighters and police cars, ambulances are pulled into the fire area. In the fire involved several hundred firefighters. French President Emmanuel Macron has already arrived at the site of the fire, who canceled his television address to the nation, previously scheduled for this evening.

The Paris Prosecutor’s Office launched an investigation into the fire at Notre Dame de Paris.

Earlier, a video of the fall of the famous spire appeared on the Web. Firefighters confirmed that the roof of the building collapsed.

Notre Dame Cathedral for centuries is the most famous building in Paris. It is included in the list of world historical monuments. In August 1239, a relic revered as the crown of thorns of Christ was brought to the cathedral. For the first time, the States General (the first parliament of France) gathered here, the wedding of King Navarre Henry IV and Margarita de Valois was held. Napoleon was crowned in these walls in 1804, and in 1944 a solemn prayer service was served on the occasion of the liberation of Paris.

For all travelers, Notre Dame Cathedral, the foundation stone of which was laid in 1163 under Louis VII, remains the main point of reference. It is from the square in front of the cathedral that all distances in France are measured today.
