Fire in Place des Vosges, ParisHot Topics Not vetted story Vetted story Paris, France - 11 May 2011
A building fire took place this evening in one of Paris's most famous and prestigious squares, Place des Vosges. There were numerous fire trucks and police cars in the street surrounding the square, and the effected building had been blocked off by the time I arrived. Although the roof was still smoking, the fire seemed to be under control. Firemen were still entering the building via the burnt-away roof.
