There has been a fire out break reported at Nantes cathedral church in France, at the early hours of today been Saturday 18th day of July 2020. The fire was said to be an arson, and I wonder why someone would want to burn down the house of God. It was revealed that the French authorities launched an arson investigation, after the firefighters swung into action and intercepted the anomaly by saving the cathedral in Nantes from devastating blaze.
The fire which broke out on Saturday inside the 15th century cathedral of st. Peters and st. Paul of the western France city, was said to have destroyed the grand organ, which is known as the “soul of the cathedral”. A heavy smoke was seen spewing from the cathedral towers before the firefighters brought it under control, stained glasses at the front of the cathedral were blown out, although the roof has not been touched by the fire.
The prosecutor, Pierre Sennes confirmed that three fires had been started at different locations at the site and that the authorities were treating the incident as a criminal act.
