Smoke is no longer rising from the spire of the 12th-century Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption in Rouen, France, after a fire broke out midday Thursday. The Gothic cathedral, undergoing renovation, was depicted by Claude Monet in the 19th century. Initial footage showed thick smoke, but later images revealed it had diminished. Rouen Mayor Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol confirmed all public resources were mobilized to contain the blaze, whose cause remains unknown.
