Norwich Students On Trip To Paris Safe During Fire At Notre Dame Cathedral

Posted: Updated:

A group of Norwich high school students are currently in Paris where the Notre Dame Cathedral is in flames. All students and staff are safe according to a post on the high school's Facebook page. 

A tweet from Norwich Emergency Management Office Director A. Wesley Jones says the group of students had visited Notre Dame earlier in the day on Monday before the fire broke out. 

Jones says those students were some of the last to see the inside of the historic landmark. National news media is reporting the inside of that cathedral, which contains priceless works of art and over 800 years worth of history, is likely completely destroyed.
