Firefighters were on site containing the flames and billowing smoke from the third floor of a nine-story office building after a fire broke out in the heart of Paris Saturday morning.

The blaze was adjacent to Paris' famous 19th century national opera house, the Palais Garnier.

No injuries have been reported and the cause of the fine remains unclear - an investigation will ensue.
