PARIS (Reuters) – Paris’s historic Saint-Sulpice church, which was used in the filming of U.S. author Dan Brown’s ‘Da Vinci Code’ bestseller, briefly caught fire on Sunday but firefighters were able to bring the blaze under control and nobody was hurt.

The fire started early in the afternoon, when four people were inside, with flames climbing up the massive doors of the Roman Catholic church before spreading to stained glass above and to a nearby stairway, a fire brigade spokesman said.
