One Twitter user who was on the scene tweeted: “Major fire in Nantes Cathedral. Let us keep our fingers crossed so that the damage is minor, and above all, that it is not of criminal origin.” Another reiterated this and tweeted: “Fire alert at Nantes cathedral, not all these fires are coincidences or accidents.”
Nantes Cathedral caught fire “48 years ago” and one twitter user reminds us of that incident also.
They said: “I learn with great sadness that the Cathedral in Nantes is once again engulfed in flames on Saturday morning.
“History unfortunately repeats itself 48 years later.
“Support for our firefighters.”
