Fire at Nantes Cathedral in France
Fire at Nantes Cathedral in France

A fire that broke out at the cathedral in the western French city of Nantes has been contained, firefighters said.

Images from the scene show a substantial fire and smoke billowing from inside the Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul cathedral, which dates from the 15th Century.

The cause of the blaze is not known.

It comes only a year after the devastating fire at the cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, one of France’s greatest architectural treasures.

However, the local fire service said the damage in Nantes was not on a comparable scale, as reported by BBC.
