The highest spire has collapsed.

The carpentry work (13th century) is pretty much all consumed. There were important renovation works on the side of the building which was enveloped in scaffolding. Fire might be related to this construction work, but that's speculation, of course.

The whole of Île de la Cité has reportedly been evacuated.
