Trump tweeted his reaction to the fire as video and images of the flames over the famous cathedral were posted on social media.
The president also suggested sending flying water tankers to drown out the flames.

“So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!” Trump wrote.
Vice President Mike Pence also tweeted about the fire, offering thoughts and prayers to the firefighters and the people of Paris.
French President Emmanuel Macron shared his thoughts with the nation and Catholics as “Our Lady of Paris” continued to erupt in flames on Monday.
“Like all our countrymen, I’m sad tonight to see this part of us burn,” he wrote, in part, on Twitter.
Macron postponed a pre-recorded speech to the country that was set to be aired later Monday on French TV. Macron was expected to lay out his plan to address the citizen complaints that gave rise to the yellow vest protests that have rocked France since November.
Meanwhile, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo called it a “terrible fire.”

It was not immediately clear what caused the fire. Sources told Fox News that it appears the fire was related to recent construction done at the cathedral.
Notre Dame was undergoing a $6.8 million renovation project, with some sections under scaffolding, while bronze statues were removed last week amid construction.
