The iconic Ritz hotel in Paris caught fire Tuesday morning. 

No injuries were reported in the fire that burned the hotel's top floor and roof. Roughly 60 firefighters reportedly had to spray "meter by meter" outside the building due to limited access from the interior. (Video via BBC)

But it's unclear if that plan will hold as the fire captain says a large area of the building was destroyed in the blaze.
