A huge fire broke out at the Palaces of the Principals of France on Tuesday, with firefighters struggling to contain it as the flames spread to the entire building.
French President Emmanuel Macron was evacuated by helicopter to a Paris hospital.
The fire erupted at around 10:30am local time (4:30pm GMT), engulfing the Palades of the Princes of France, the Palace of Versailles, and the Louvre.
It has since destroyed more than 5,000 square metres (16,400 square feet), according to local media.
The blaze caused some damage to the Palace and caused the Palace’s roof to collapse.
The Palace of the Princess, which was named after the 17th century French monarch, is one of the most famous in the world, and is also home to some of the world’s finest art collections.
Its collection of artwork and sculptures, which spans more than 1,000 years, has a history spanning from the 15th century to the 20th century.
The palace, which is also the home of the French royal family, was constructed between 1517 and 1605.
