NANTES, France. — An arson investigation has been launched after a fire at the Gothic Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul in the western French city of Nantes.

The Associated Press is reporting the fire destroyed the organ, shattered stained glass windows, and sent black smoke spewing from between the cathedral towers.

No injuries have been reported.

The fire comes just 15 months after the April 2019 fire that ravaged Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.
