A fire ripped through the 15th-century Nantes Cathedral in France early Saturday morning, blowing out stained-glass windows and destroying its famed grand organ.
Prosecutor Pierre Sennes said three different fires had been set at the cathedral and that French authorities were treating the incident as a criminal act on suspicion of arson.
Regional fire chief General Laurent Ferlay reported that the fire was contained by more than 100 firefighters after a two-hour battle.

The fire comes just over a year after the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, which destroyed its roof and main spire.
? Saturday's fire was not the first at Nantes Cathedral. It was partly destroyed in 1944 during World War II after Allied bombings. In 1972, a fire completely demolished its ancient wooden roof. The roof was rebuilt 13 years later with a concrete structure.
