UPDATE @ 10 p.m. The world reacted with shock, horror and prayers to Monday’s massive fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
Many of our News Center 7 reporters have visited Notre Dame. Sean Cudahy and his family traveled there most recently in 2016, and Kate Bartley and her husband visited the landmark during their honeymoon in 2015.
As flames tore through the 12th-century cathedral, President Donald Trump said the cathedral "might be greater than almost any museum in the world and it's burning, very badly."
He said the fire was a terrible sight to behold.
Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, said he prayed at his city's St. Patrick's Cathedral for intercession.
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said earlier that most artworks and religious relics were removed from Notre Dame as firefighters worked to control the blaze.
If you have visited the Cathedral, send WHIO-TV your photos to share.

Your response has been strong and hearty -- from photos snapped March 30, to photos taken by a student studying abroad in 2017, to photos made during a visit in 1998 -- and WHIO-TV appreciates it.
Photos have come to the newsroom from Waynesville to New Carlisle to Coldwater, from Dayton to Oxford (Ohio), from Beavercreek to Bellefontaine.
News Center 7’s Mike Campbell visited in mid-March.
“It was surreal to watch today’s events and our thoughts are with the people of Paris,” said Tim Purcell, who visited Notre Dame with his wife on March 30.
