A fire has broken out at Paris's famous Notre Dame cathedral.

The cause of the fire is unclear at this time.

And while viewers around the world watched the disaster unfold, President Donald Trump - for some reason - felt the need to chime in.

Built over a century starting in 1163, Notre-Dame is considered to be among the finest examples of French Gothic cathedral architecture. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. "Must act quickly!" the president tweeted.

Sights of the flames stopped passers-by in their tracks along the Seine River that passes beneath the cathedral. The latter has now collapsed after being consumed by flames.
