Brief fire atop Eiffel Tower extinguished (ASSOCIATED PRESS, July 22, 2003)
A fire broke out on the top of the Eiffel Tower on Tuesday, sending black smoke pouring from the 1,069-foot Paris landmark and forcing the evacuation of a stream of visitors. The fire - which broke out in an area housing television and radio equipment, just below the tower?s antenna - was put out after about an hour, police said.
