Camila Cabello and Anne Hathaway are among celebrities saddened by the massive fire that destroys the iconic Parisian church, while French officials reject President Trump's suggestion to fly water tankers to put out the flame.

AceShowbiz - Not just French, but millions of people around the world are devastated by the fire that destroyed the Notre Dame Cathedral. Among those who have reacted to the shocking news online were celebrities like Camila Cabello, Anne Hathaway and Rob Lowe.

"Havana" hitmaker Cabello wrote on Twitter, "my heart is breaking seeing the fire at notre dame. I'll never forget walking in the first time in Paris and being in awe of the beauty of it."

Sharing a picture of the Notre Dame's enchanting rose window, Hathaway seemed to be in disbelief over what happened to the iconic church. "I know this is an inspired representation of an even greater divinity. I know this blessed place is a human-made interpretation of what is mysterious, unknowable, and undefinable and while seeing her burn brings tears to my eyes, I know even flames cannot diminish her sacredness. Still, not her. Please. Not her," she heartbreakingly wrote in the caption.

Lowe admitted, "I'm heartbroken for Paris, for France, for us all, everywhere. My life is better for having seen its splendor. #notredame."

Dua Lipa added, "So much history collapsing right before our eyes. Heartbroken for Notre-Dame and Paris."

Some others like Ashley Benson, Josh Gad and Leslie Mann shared their memories from visiting the church.

Former President Barack Obama posted a picture of his family's visit to Notre Dame and wrote along with it, "Notre Dame is one of the world's great treasures, and we're thinking of the people of France in your time of grief. It's in our nature to mourn when we see history lost - but it's also in our nature to rebuild for tomorrow, as strong as we can. "

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has been mocked for his reaction to the fire. "So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!" he tweeted.

Many then commented on Trump's suggestion to use water tanks to put out the flame, which is deemed inapplicable in such situation. "Flying water tankers? Are you high?" one wrote in response. Another responded, "Did he really say that? I thought he didn't drink."

"What would you do with a brain if you had one?" someone else mocked the president. Others compared Trump's reaction to the fire to former Obama's words, and advised him to pay attention to what a "real president" says.

French officials also reacted to Trump's suggestion, with the official Twitter account for France's Securite Civile, the civil defense and crisis management agency, explaining the destructive effect of using water tanks. "Hundreds of firemen of the Paris Fire Brigade are doing everything they can to bring the terrible #NotreDame fire under control," the account wrote in English. "All means being used, except for water-bombing aircrafts which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral."

At least 400 firefighters were on the scene to douse the flames that broke out on Monday, April 15. After four hours, firefighters were able to get the fire under control. Paris fire brigade chief Jean-Claude Gallet and Deputy Interior Minister Laurent Nunez confirmed the main structure of the building, including its main bell towers and northern belfry has been "saved and preserved" as the fire has been lowered in intensity.
